Interview with BBC Midlands Today on surveillance cameras
I have just done an interview with BBC Midlands Today about the surveillance cameras. It will be broadcast at 6.30pm tonight and after the 10 o’clock news. Anger about the cameras is building. At last night’s packed Hall Green constituency meeting I moved a resolution calling for the removal of the cameras. It was unanimously supported. I also received support for my call for legal action. Birmingham Safety Partnership and West Midlands Police were exposed at the meeting for giving misleading information about the purpose of these cameras. They further admitted they had delibertely excluded the public from discussions.
