    A council could stop paying for speed cameras because it says they might not be the best way to make roads safer.
    Tory-run Swindon Borough Council currently spends about £400,000 to fund speed cameras in the town.
    Its leader, Roderick Bluh, said cash from fines goes to central government and there could be better ways to cut the number of accidents on roads.
    It is thought to be the first time a council has challenged the government on the issue of speed camera funding.
