HAMPSHIRE POLICE are hunting an irate motorist who blew up a roadside speed camera with a bomb.

Residents of Eastleigh were woken up by the sound of an explosion in the early hours of Christmas Eve, Police have said

The force is now trying to track down the culprit, checking CCTV in the area in an attempt to identify the bomber.

Hampshire Police's acting Chief Inspector, Kelly Whiting, said: 'This is totally irresponsible behaviour by whoever committed this offence.

'There could have been a potential risk to passers-by although this was minimised by the time of the incident.

'There was a risk to the nearby petrol station and the attack could have had serious consequences.'
