A man climbed into the back of the speed camera post and flashed passers-by with his phone.

John Westlake, 38, was waiting for his takeout pizza when he spotted the camera near Lyons Winkups Holiday Park.

“We were waiting outside for our pizzas when I noticed a hole in the back of the speed camera,” the man said.

It was early morning, and he thought it would be a good prank while waiting.

“I thought it would be a funny way of killing some time to climb up and flash the passing cars to see if they’d slow down,” Westlake told NorthWales Live.

Westlake climbed to the post and sat inside the camera’s casing.

Once inside the speed camera, Westlake began flashing even to the people passing by,

“I flashed one person who went by in a mobility scooter and told them to slow down,” he narrated.

He and his wife had a good time while waiting.

“Every car I flashed slowed down afterwards – it kept us entertained when we were waiting for our food.”

This prank went viral on Facebook, and the people enjoyed it.

“I think people relate to it because no one likes speed cameras.”

Surprisingly, Westlake never knew he could climb that high.

“I just took a run-up and managed to climb in. I was quite surprised that I had managed it.”
