    Lords will decide if 'speed trap' alert legal


    The House of Lords will decide whether a lorry driver broke the law by warning motorists about a police speed trap.

    Two High Court judges had earlier ruled milk tanker driver Charles Glendinning, 55, was not guilty of obstructing officers in the execution of their duty for showing

    a "slow down" signal from his cab window in Somerset last June.

    They said that because there was no evidence his signal had been seen by other drivers he could not be held guilty of obstruction.

    Today, Lord Justice Scott Baker and Mr Justice Owen refused the Crown Prosecution Service at Taunton, Somerset, permission to appeal.

    They asked what the difference was between Mr Glendinning's arm signal and a sign warning motorists of speed cameras and said the case raised issues of public importance.

    This means it will be left to the House of Lords to decide the case.
