A 72-year-old man living beside a major UK road has refused to take down a replica speed camera.
The BBC report says Mike Lacey built the fake camera for £40 using drainpipe and guttering to slow drivers passing his house next to the A1 in Beeston, Bedfordshire.
Lacey says authorities have asked him to remove the structure as it was distracting for drivers.
The village is divided by a dual-carriageway with a speed limit of 50mph.
