Speed camera vandals have struck again cutting down a pole on the main road Falmouth to Helston Road.

Vandals struck last night on the Helston side of Trewennack cutting down just one of the average speed cameras mounted at the end of the village.

See a Facebook Live video from the scene and reaction here: Police 'deeply concerned' about spate of criminal damage to speed cameras

Josh Bradford took these pictures of the camera cut down early this morning. As they are average speed cameras only one needs to be cut down to make the other redundant.

The actions of the vandals left yellow pole lying up against a fence on the side of the road with the electric cables exposed.

Local residents were less than impressed. One said: [It's] Far from ideal, we live on the road in the village and it's bad enough trying to cross the road to the fields to walk the dog and with crossing children with cars going 30, there are also lots of children who have to cross when the bus drops them from school.

"Those going quicker than 30 through here have no thought for others at all, people need to be sensible driving through."

Another person said: "It’s there to help stop accidents. Speed limits are put in place for a reason and I am not a do-gooder as I have been caught speeding!!"

The vandalism comes just days after speed cameras at Perranarworthal were put back up after being cut down on the A39 at the Norway Inn.

The two average speed cameras at Perranarworthal, between Truro and Falmouth, were put up in March and damaged in October by an unknown person.

The police have been contacted for a statement.
