Strange looking camera on the B1248 Wetwang east yorkshire

Hello guys

Does anybody on here live near or use the B1248 into Wetwang?, came through there today and as you drive up to the junction to turn left into Wetwang coming from Howden way there is a strange camera.

I have googled it but nothing comes up in the location and I cannot find any pictures that look like it.

It was a Yellow box with a speed camera sign on it, the box is about an 8 inch oblong, 4 ft off the floor and it has what can only be described as a Gatling type gun barrel on the side about 12 in long.

any ideas?

No, just Googled that and it looks nothing like it.

I have been searching the net for the last half hour and cannot find anything that looks like it or says that there is a camera in the area.

It was on a fixed post but only 3 / 4 feet high off the floor, did have a speed camera sticker on it.

It would be good to hear from somebody who uses the road daily or lives near by, I will be going back up there in a couple of days so I may stop and have a proper look.

That's what I was thinking. I've seen a scarecrow dressed as plod with a speed camera the other year.
I agree about the fish and chips though

The thing I found odd is that it was on the grass verge and only about 3-4 ft high, easy for kids and people to mess with, normally they are mounted higher up out of reach
