It appears that the man responsible for the 5,000 speed cameras around the UK doesn't know where they all are. The head of Serco's home affairs company, the boss of the speed camera firm, has been banned from driving for six months after admitting speeding at more than 100mph on a 70mph road in Suffolk.

Tom Riall, 49, is a chief executive of Serco, which has provided most of the UK's speed cameras. He appeared at Sudbury Magistrates' Court and pleaded guilty to driving at 102.9mph on the A14 on 4 January, 2009. Riall was fined £300, banned from driving for six months and had six points added to his licence.
