Why are there no speed limit signs on the road where the alleged offence took place?

In areas with street lighting, the speed limit is 30mph unless there are signs saying otherwise. 30mph signs are only displayed at the perimeter of such a zone.

This is covered within the Highway Code, under Speed Limits, which states

You MUST NOT exceed the maximum speed limits for the road and for your vehicle. Street lights usually mean that there is a 30 mph speed limit unless there are signs showing another limit.
