Dorset, UK Speed Camera Destroyed by Fire
Vigilantes in Dorset, England take out a speed camera with a burning tire.

Mayor Queenie Comfort
Vigilantes set fire to a speed camera in Dorset, UK at around 2am on Thursday. The automated ticketing machine had been operating in the Longham area of Ringwood Road until a burning tire put the device out of commission.

This is the fourth attack in the area since August when vigilantes also eliminated cameras on Magna Road in Bearwood, Ringwood Road in Verwood and Horton Road in Three Legged Cross. Cameras were also destroyed in 2006.

"The cameras also cost a lot," Ferndown Mayor Queenie Comfort told the Bournemouth Echo newspaper. "When you set tires on fire they make a most ghastly smell and they are toxic."
