CCTV Helps Catch Boy Racers

More than 60 boy racers have been caught driving dangerously since cameras were installed on a notorious road – with prosecutions on the way.

In September, Castle Point Council installed three CCTV cameras in Roscommon Way, after a two-year campaign by residents.

Nearby residents kept awake by the roar of high-performance engines welcomed the crackdown. One neighbour, who suffered sleepless nights due to the noise, said "They fact that they are doing something about it is good because I’m getting fed up with it. It looked like nothing was happening because they just put the cameras up and left them. I’m glad it’s working and they are catching people. Hopefully, it will discourage others.”

The local police later added, "This has proven the cameras were right and are being successful”
