    Sussex Safer Roads Partnership says average speed cameras have a greater effect on driver behaviour for a longer period.

    "I wish to thank my friends, family and community from the bottom of my heart for the love and support given to us."

    Masood, 52, who was born in Kent and stayed in Brighton before the attack, was previously known as Adrian Ajao.
