South Yorkshire Police have joined forces with European colleagues this week for a continent-wide operation to crackdown on speeding drivers.

Officers from the roads policing unit teamed up with officers from the European Traffic Police Network to lead a number of speed detection initiatives across the area. A similar operation last year saw more than 580,000 speeding detections in 28 countries. The results of this latest operation are not due until next week.
