Safety camera partnership closes
The Wiltshire and Swindon Safety Camera Partnership has closed due to spending cuts, resulting in the loss of 40 jobs (BBC News).
The partnership comprised Wiltshire Police, Wiltshire Council and Swindon Borough Council. A 27% cut in revenue from the DfT to English local authorities has been blamed for the partnership's closure.
Swindon Borough Council was the first English local authority to abandon fixed safety cameras one year ago. Wiltshire Police says it will continue to enforce speed limits despite the cameras being switched off.
