Oxfordshire speed cameras on again eight months after switch off

Speed cameras across Oxfordshire are to be switched back on eight months after they were turned off, amid an increase in the number of deaths and serious injuries on the roads.

Funding was withdrawn last August as part of budget cuts which saw the plug pulled on 72 cameras and 89 mobile sites abandoned.

Now funded by the proceeds of speed awareness courses and backroom savings, the cameras will be switched back on at 0900 BST.

Tim Muffett reports.
