On High Street close to where The Norman pub used to stand. It must have been a ferocious fire to gut the Gatso like that. I wonder if it melted the film contained within?
The torching of speed cameras is not unique to Tameside. If you type 'speed camera torched' into a search engine you will see that it is nationwide phenomenon with people taking extraordinary risks to avoid getting speeding tickets. The logic is strange as getting caught speeding will result in a £60 fine and three penalty points whereas getting caught for torching a Gatso could potentially lead to massive financial penalties and a prison sentence.
