A man who blew up a roadside camera after he was caught speeding has been jailed for four months. Railway worker Craig Moore, from Doncaster, thought he could destroy the evidence if he oblitered the camera. The 28-year-old used explosives taken from his work welding railway lines to destroy the camera, causing £11,700 of damage.
But the images of him speeding through the Hyde area of Manachester were stored in the camera base, Minshull Crown Court heard.
And images of him returning to wreak revenge on the carnera were also stored in the base.
Moore admitted a charge of damaging property at a hearing last month.
His defence lawyer, Andrew Bailey, said: "The defendant accepts that he has created a mountain out of a molehill by behaving stupidly.
"He finds himself in a great deal of trouble rather than the little deal of trouble he would have been in."
In fact, he would have been in no trouble had he not returned to destroy the camera.
Tameside Council confirmed that the Watchman camera was designed to deter speeders, not catch them, and that it flashed only as a warning.
However, the Watchman does contain cameras which monitor the area, and those are what caught Moore.

All this talk of 'storing fireworks', the only fireworks in the building were rookies that anyone can go and buy if they are over the age of eighteen, you are making it sound like they had professional display fireworks or something in the house. The large explosions were caused by camping gas canisters.

despite early fire officials reports that there was a large stash of fireworks - it has now been established that the majority of the explosions were caused by a gas cannister.
The two men in question have been investigated by trading standards (in regards to the storing of 'fireworks') and were within thier legal limits.
Because of the intital police and fire reports as the events were unfolding, some of these facts were not released to the public (via the media) until today (Friday).

if you are fed up with the fireworks then there is only one simple explanation, do what everyone who is fed up with them have been threatening to do.... leave the town!! but its not likely because i bet you feel at least a little deep down that bonfire is a part of you !and i think that comment was a little selfish, imagine there had been a young child in the building, you wouldnt be saying that if someone had died!!

I am very perturbed at the amount of bangers that are being let off and often by underage children. They are getting louder and louder and going off till the early hours of the morning. These people have no thought for others or for animals since I was born (over 50 years) - no amount of antisocial behaviour will make me leave (yet anyway). But what do the Bonfire Societies do to help minimise the danger and the inconvenience. Yesterday (Saturday 14th) there was a bonfire event - bangers were going off until the early hours - there must be a connection. Please let us hear from those who are responsible why they do it?
