cctv CCTV pic


I suppose the hot stock to be holding now is anything to do with Smart Cameras.

Plus, we have to do our patriotic duty and stop whining about privacy and the right not to be spied on. No thanks to the part played by cameras in tracking the July 7 bombers, I have a nasty feeling that the 1984 bunch have just been handed a large dollop of carte blanche with which to pursue their shadowy agenda.

There seemed to be some surprise that the tube and bus suicide bombers had been captured on closed-circuit surveillance cameras. I don't know why: the Brits are the most photographed people in the world. With around 4.5 million CCTV cameras keeping watch across the country, that's like one for every 14 people.

It's reckoned that Londoners (including tourists) can expect to filmed up to 300 times a day. Compare that to Germany and Canada where I believe such use of cameras in public is actually forbidden.

It's interesting to think back on the part played by cameras these days.

So we've got this current most famous snap from Camera 14 at Luton station of Messrs Hasib Hussain, Germaine Lindsay, Mohammad Sadique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer off to catch the London train.

Nothing too suspicious there:Hasib Hussain caught on Camera

  • Timetables and posters
  • The sheen of overnight rain
  • Four lads bound for a little action in the Smoke, toting the usual plastic bags, running shoes, peaked caps and backpacks
  • Backpacks that we now know carried explosives that mere hours from then would wreak death and destruction.
  • Time: 54 seconds past 7.21am, July 7, 2005.

    Nor who can forget those extraordinary glimpses in the Ritz Hotel of Princess Di and Dodi Fayed just minutes before chauffeur Henri Paul drove them at great speed to their controversial death.

    Bootle Strand: Venables and Thompson leading Jamie Bulger to be murderedEven more grisly is the pitiful sight from the afternoon of February 12, 1993, of three young chaps walking out of Liverpool's Bootle Strand shopping centre, the youngest - James Bulger (2) - trustingly hand-in-hand with 10-year-old Jon Venables.

    It looks too normal for words - brothers, perhaps, out for a little spree and some window shopping?

    But Venables and Thompson would later be found guilty of torturing and murdering the toddler.

    Great work on your blog - it was very enlightening. You've got a lot of useful info on there about surveillance cameras so I've bookmarked your site so I don't lose it.
