Speed camera flashing intermittently

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue category anonymously at 00:50, Sunday 17 October 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

Travelling home approx between Prestwich and Swinton. Avg speed 70mph.

At approximately 0020hrs on 17/10/21

My vehicle along with several others passed the camera on the anti clockwise carriageway which flashed. This camera intermittently flashed prior to approaching it too.

No signs illuminated on the smart motorway indicating the variable speed had been lowered.

No idea why camera flashed as the cars were all doing same speed

No other speed signs illuminated until A580 which showed a clear way / National speed limit sign.

Possibility the signs were off but the cameras were set to a lower speed?
