Anti Clockwise camera flashing at normal road speed when National 70 speed allowed

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue category anonymously at 22:11, Tuesday 20 April 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

Travelling home from work approx 2115-2120 between Prestwich and Swinton turn off cruise control set to 70. Waze showing 67.

My vehicle along with several others passed the camera on the anti clockwise carriageway which flashed.

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?
