New enforcement cameras on bus lanes in Newcastle have gone live, meaning those who ignore traffic rules could be handed a £60 fine.

The £80,000 camera system has been installed in four locations in the city.

  • The Tyne Bridge
  • The High Level Bridge
  • Great North Road
  • Brunton Lane Bridge at Newcastle Great Park

Cameras will also shortly be switched at Netherwitton Way at Newcastle Great Park and on the Central Motorway at Cowgate.

This is not about raising money as critics may suggest - but part of a wider package of transport measures to make it easier and quicker to get around Newcastle.

Dave Allitt, boss of the Peterborough speedway team, has wished Newcastle Diamonds rider Lewis Kerr well after an accident that took place while competing left him in a coma.

The crash took place at the East of England Showground last night during the final of the Premier League Fours.

Kerr, from Snettisham in Norfolk, was airlifted to Addenbrookes hospital in Cambridge and put into a medically induced coma.

The thoughts and prayers of everyone connected to Peterborough Speedway – and I’m sure the sport as a whole – are with Lewis.

He is a great guy who I have known since he took his first steps in the sport with the Young Stars at King’s Lynn.

We can only hope for good news in the coming days. Lewis is a fighter and, if anyone can pull through adversity, it is him.

– Dave Allitt
