There will be no new speed cameras deployed in the UK for several months pending a report into their effectiveness, the Department for Transport (DfT) has announced. The University College London probe is not expected to be completed until the end of the year, and all applications for new cameras are duly suspended.

A DfT spokeswoman told AP: "Every year, those in the camera partnership scheme submit applications to us for new camera sites. This year we are waiting for this independent review to be completed before approving any new sites. The review has been delayed.

"There should have been a report out in June, but it's taking longer than expected. We are not blocking the use of new cameras. It's important that we get everything right in relation to the whole issue of cameras," she concluded. ®
