If you were to speed through a light that had just changed to red, where there is a red light camera, what would be the outcome of this?

Would you receive 3 points as the offences were connected or would it be 6 points?

Also would you be offered a course for one of or even both of these offences?

As far as I'm aware cameras are either in red light mode, or speed mode, I don't think they can detect both at the same time.

The camera detects speed while the lights are on green or amber, and changes to red light mode just after the red light shows (one second?). It can't do both simultaneously.

Any course offer would depend upon the speed, or the time into red.

Interesting point, if you go past the camera while it's in the process of switching over you might get away with both offences.

Thanks for the quick replies, very useful too.

So if there was a scenario where a driver passed through a light just as it went to red whilst travelling 30-35 mph. Only one of the offences would be counted and probably a course offered due to the time/speed?

Yes. Even if you were caught for both offences, you'd only get points for one anyway.

Okay thanks for the advice. So many different types of new cameras showing up you never know where you stand with them.
