A speed camera in Portsmouth raked in the second-highest amount of money in the country, according to a national newspaper.

The fixed camera on the A3 in Anglesea Road caught on average 537 motorists a month, netting £387,000 a year. The highest was a temporary camera on the A1M in Hertfordshire, which caught 789 people a month.

Portsmouth’s cameras were switched off this year when the city council decided to stop contributing to their funding.
