Mobile phone evidence has led to a 12-month sentence for one Lincolnshire man.
Ashley Rowland, 23, set a speed camera on the A631 on fire in October last year, and video footage of the attack helped to convict him, according to the Lincolnshire Echo.
The arson attack was carried out at the request of next-door neighbour Anthony Luty after the speed camera caught his HGV travelling at 49mph in a 40mph restricted zone.
Police looked at vehicles that had been in the area on the day the camera was set alight and made the connection between Mr Rowland and Mr Luty, as they were neighbours.
Mr Luty was arrested after police found footage on his phone of the speed camera alight.
With more people carrying their mobile phones with them everywhere they go, and capturing their lives in photos and videos, police are increasingly using electronic evidence in court.
Footage captured by bystanders to offences is also proving invaluable to law enforcement, with several London rioters arrested due to the public's evidence.
