    ot cctv

    problem , you are not supposed to video past your household .
    One person was fined 100,000 for filming on his neighbours .
    but if it happens burglaries car thefts etc. police ask for cctv from people.

    Crash I think the case you refer to is one of a neighbour who refused to remove his cctv doorbell that overlooked his neighbours property and she asked him to remove it and he refused so she took him to court.

    The funny thing is he showed it her on installation saying how they were both protected because it covered both properties. The judge agreed with the
    person complaining and agreed her full costs and all from a doorbell.

    Did you also know, you must display in your home windows that your home/ property is monitoring cctv or you cannot use this as evidence?

    I have cctv, I asked neighbours if they wanted the cameras to cover their properties also,
    which all agreed, so therefore got permission.
    Which is common sense, but when my car was vandalised, the police said only use is
    the date it happened.
    Most cases the thieves etc wear a mask & hoodie.

    Only use a CCTV is any good for is name and shame on FB or Twitter. Very rarely police can use the evidence to convict

    That was a waste of money then.

    In have cctv and the other day my garden gate was open so I thought someone was snooping around to see what I had in my garage.

    I checked the images and part of the recording was useless because of the Sun being low in the sky and ruining the image.
    But just before sunset I found the culprit. One of my cats had jumped on the catch and the gate had sprung open.
    It's difficult to do that so I was well impressed.
    Money well spent I'm sure everyone will agree and tiddles got extra dinner for his parcour abilities
