Driver threw speed camera off cliff

A Swiss driver flashed by a speed camera attacked it with a pick axe, ran it over with his car and threw it off a cliff.

The motorist used the pick axe to smash the camera free from its mountings, then drove what was left up a mountain to throw it off a cliff.

He was doing nearly 50mph in a 30mph zone through the Swiss village of La Punt Chamues-ch in the Alps when he was flashed by the camera.

The film and camera were destroyed, but he was spotted by police as he threw the device off the cliff and arrested.

He faces a fine of up to £13,000 for destruction of public property.
