I am the eye in the sky

I appear to live in the most CCTVed London Borough - by quite a long way.
The BBC's Newsnight programme made Freedom of Information requests to almost 100 local authorities in the UK to ask how many cameras they operate.
According to the BBC report there are nearly 4 cameras per 1000 people here in Wandsworth, nearly twice as many as in the second most camera-heavy area, Camden. There are more cameras in Wandsworth than in Dublin, San Francisco, Johannesburg and Boston combined.



Yikes.

Remember to smile and wave at the nice man at the monitor screen.
