What Legal action can I expect,I think there is only a bus lane camera at the lights
It depends if it is council or police.
If it is a council fine then they will just send out a fixed penalty fine. It wil not carry points.
If it is a police issue fine then it will be 3 points and a fine of £100 or the red light awareness course.
That is, of course, supposing that anything happens at all as it often does not.
Can I clarify anything for you?

How long does one wait 7or 14 days ?
There isn't a way of telling from the device itself.
Generally speaking the police are more likely to use fixed cameras whereas the council rely on CCTV but not always.
