A NEW puzzler has got the people who run West Yorkshire's speed cameras scratching their heads.
Back in the summer, they wondered why their website had more hits from Thailand than from anywhere else in the world.
Now there's an even bigger mystery - why has the interest from overseas shifted to New Zealand and Australia?
Spokesman Philip Gwynne admitted: "It's got us stumped."
Monthly analysis showed that internet users from Thailand were top of the overseas visits in June and July, way ahead of next highest country France.
But a study of the September and October figures reveals that no-one has visited from Thailand since then . . . and most overseas visits come from Down Under.
Mr Gwynne said: "Maybe these are people who've emigrated from West Yorkshire and simply want to keep in touch with their homeland via news about the region's safety cameras."
The cameras are administered by West Yorkshire Casualty Reduction Partnership, which is made up of the five major local councils in the county, including Kirklees.
Officials had believed most foreign visitors to the site were people from European countries thinking of touring the area.
Just under 44,000 hits a month are being recorded on the site from people seeking information about fixed and mobile speed cameras.
