Kent and Sussex speed camera statistics released

A single speed camera in Sussex has caught nearly 8,500 motorists speeding in a year.

The camera on the A22 Eastbourne Road in Halland caught 4,902 drivers in 2011-12, 7,126 in 2012-13 and 8,430 in 2013-14.

Figures obtained by BBC South East Today show fixed speed cameras in Kent and Sussex collected nearly £3.3m from drivers last year - up more than £1m on the previous 12 months.

Road safety campaigners have said the cameras are helping to save lives but critics claim they are about raising revenue.

In an exclusive report, BBC reporter Mark Sanders talked to Pete Williams from the RAC, and Patricia Ireland who was hit by a speeding driver.
