The Northumberland Brewery in Bedlington, Northumberland, has launched a beer called Highway Robbery in protest against speed cameras. Dave Roberts, who runs the brewery, said: "Stagecoaches used to run from York to Edinburgh and highwaymen would rob them. "Now you can get robbed and not even know about it until the letter comes in the post for £60. People are really supportive of this beer and it's selling out." The beer’s pump shows a speed camera dressed up as a highway robber.
