CCTV in operation here

As an aside, do we still need signs in shopping centers etc that CCTVs are in use? Considering how ubiquitous they have become,  I’d have thought most people would now automatically presume they are being monitored by cameras when in such places.

Sample Issue


  1. nice!! modern life eh?

  2. Yep, that’s the true christmas spirit of goodwill.

  3. Whilst not very festive, I believe it is the law that you must say if you are monitoring people on CCTV.

    I guess it also is a deterrent so that people don’t vandalise the tree or nick the baubles…

  4. Canary Wharf have had these warning baubles for a couple of years – I’ve snapped one in the past.

    RR is right about it being a legal requirement – CCTV falls under the Data Protection Act, because they’re gathering and electronically storing information about you (ie your image), so you need to be notified.
