Surveillance chief says number plate cameras could be illegal

Sir Andrew Leggatt"It is arguable that even if the presence of an Automated Number Plate Recognition camera is apparent, surveillance nevertheless remains covert if occupants of vehicles are unaware that the camera may make and record identifiable images of them. It is not possible to lay down rules as to what will amount to adequate notice of the presence of the camera and of its function." —Chief Surveillance Commissioner Sir Andrew Leggatt (Thanks, Dave!)
