The Lancaster and Morecambe Citizen reports that an increase in Lancashire's digital speed cameras may be imminent.

At present, only 30 out of the area's 290 camera sites are operational at any one time - the 30 cameras are rotated around the sites.

The Lancashire Partnership for Road Safety cannot presently afford to field cameras at all 290 sites as there is time and expense involved in changing the traditional "wet film" used.

However, new digital technology means that drivers may now see the number of mobile sites increase in the area.

Lancashire County Council's, Head of Sustainable Transport and Safety, said: "We are working with the police to review the available technology for enforcement of speed limits in the future. At the same time we are moving towards a more flexible and targeted approach to enforcement with Lancashire RoadWatch, which will make more use of mobile cameras to respond to community concerns about speeding and focus on locations where we know speeding causes injuries."
