CCTV cameras are a part of everyday life.... and in some cases you could argue they provide a deterrent effect on crime, and in some cases they can also be used after the even to help solve crime. But is the positive effect they can have really enough to justify millions of cameras recording your daily life? They are all over.. on the street, on buses and trains, in shops schools car parks... pretty much everywhere. They can be used to track your car - and pretty soon face recognition software will let them identify and track individuals (Actually I heard they already do for football matches).

Chris Mole has been looking at the facts - or lack of them - around CCTV surveillance in the UK.  (Which saves me the effort of going away and dragging out the facts!)
