SIX state-of-the-art safety cameras are to be installed near Royston.

The digital safety cameras, which will cost around £6,500 each to install, will be sited on A505 duel carriageway between Royston and Baldock.

Theresa Casbard, head of Hertfordshire County Council's road safety unit, said: "We are the first partnership in the country to place an order for these fixed digital cameras.

"As with the existing cameras, they should continue to make a big contribution to casualty reduction and will gradually be rolled out county-wide."
