When you see a speed camera that has been bent and twisted so that it faces towards the sky, then you might be forgiven for thinking that it has become the victim of an angry speeding motorist.
However, we think that maybe the camera has been aimed towards the sky, owing to the fact that people living around Europes busiest airport have had enough of aircraft cutting through the air at sub-sonic speeds.
Our theory would make more sense too because then extra money could be raised for local governments not only from the speeding aircraft, but also from speeding birds, insects and balloons which have managed to escape the clutches of young children.
Just think how much extra money could be raised for the local councils Christmas parties etc if local councils were guaranteed to be able to fine ‘speeding aircraft’ at the rate of at least one every minute during take off and landing hours?
Or just think how many new, plush offices could be built after just 12 months of this speed camera clocking aircraft as they take off and land – and thats without even taking into account the extra runway that will end up getting built for Heathrow airport!
However, we could be wrong and the camera really could just have been attacked by an angry speeding motorist who wanted to make the camera pay for catching him/her speeding…

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
