Cop Cam On News Site

A local newspaper has turned a small speeding story into a multimedia article by including police footage of the incident.

The Bristol Evening Post obtained the video from the Crown Prosecution Service and embedded it within the main story about a local man who has been banned for dangerous driving.

It shows the sighting and apprehension of the speeding vehicle and driver from the police car’s on-board camera.

Evening Post spokesman Marc Cooper told HoldtheFrontPage.co.uk that a reporter received the video after submitting a simple request for it.

The web editor explained: “I think, from the police’s point of view at least, it’s a case of showing people they won’t get away with things like this."

He added: “We’ve already had lots of comments on this story which is a good sign it will be well-viewed.”
