It is one of six venues chosen to host the tournament in two years' time.

Derby drivers to face bus lane fines

Motorists who drive in bus lanes in Derby will face fines of up to £60 from today.

CCTV cameras have been operating in bus lanes in the city since December last year but so far drivers have only been receiving warning letters.

The lanes, at the Nottingham Road approach to Pentagon Island, on Friar Gate and on Siddalls Road, will have CCTV enforcement cameras operational 24 hours a day.

Road signs that alert drivers to the new penalties have been placed on the approaches to each bus lane.

"Abuse of some bus lanes has been an increasing concern and the Council have continued to receive complaints from other road users and from bus companies.

CCTV cameras are the only effective way in which we can challenge the inconsiderate behaviour of some drivers.

I hope that vehicle drivers will heed this warning and comply with the traffic signs that exist in these locations."

– Councillor Asaf Afzal, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Streetpride.
