CCTV camera microphones to be axed

The Telegraph – By Patrick Hennessy, Political Editor

Hidden microphones mounted on CCTV cameras which can eavesdrop on private conversations in the street are set to be outlawed, The Sunday Telegraph can disclose.

Richard Thomas, the Information Commissioner, believes that the cameras are a serious breach of civil liberties.

Britain has 4.5million CCTV cameras which capture the average person around 300 times a day.

This week Mr Thomas will launch a new code of practice and declare that no organisation should be able to monitor or store private conversations, claiming that such activities are "highly intrusive".

Whitehall sources said last night that he has the strong backing of ministers. The ruling is also likely to be hailed by civil liberties campaigners.

 A spokesman for Mr Thomas said that the use of cameras to record voices would be allowed only in "extremely special circumstances" such as the detection of crime.

Earlier this month, a court heard how a microphone mounted on a CCTV device recorded the groans of father-of-three Mark Witherall, 47, as he was beaten and left to die by raiders after catching them at his house in Whitstable, Kent.

 In another case, a microphone on a CCTV camera picked up the screams of a woman and her child who were attacked and abused last year by a would-be arsonist at their home in Lancashire.

Some councils, including Westminster in London, began testing the new cameras last year and more are reported to be keen on using them in the run-up to the 2012 London Olympics. Many are fitted with microphones which can "bug" conversations up to 100 yards away.

Mr Thomas's ruling will also affect employers who seek to eavesdrop on private conversations between staff. David Blunkett, the former home secretary, attacked CCTV microphones last year, saying: "I don't want microphones recording me."

The concession from ministers comes as they face a Commons rebellion on a separate civil liberties issue over plans to increase from 28 to 42 the number of days police can hold terror suspects without charge.

Some Labour MPs are expected to back opposition parties in voting against the increase, which was unveiled in the Counter Terrorism Bill last week.

 David Davis, the shadow home secretary, has vowed to fight it but in what some MPs see as a step towards a compromise, he offered to help ministers with "technical problems" on the operation of the Civil Contingencies Act, under which suspects could be held for 30 extra days in a state of emergency.

Forget crop circles – now we’ve got a mysterious SHEEP circle

Daily Mail


There were strange goings on at the farm today when a flock of sheep made their own version of a crop circle.

About 100 of the woolly creatures formed an orderly ring – baffling the farmer and passers-by.

But after hearing the roar of the boss's tractor the animals scattered like a group of naughty schoolboys.

Photographer Russell Bird, who captured the amazing scene, said:"I was quite taken aback. I couldn't believe what I was seeing," he said.

"I did see a dog worrying sheep nearby beforehand and the dog ran off round the hedge in a different field, so I don't know if they were discussing that."

Bizarrely, he then spotted another circle three fields away, but was unable to take a picture with both "formations" lasting around 10 minutes before dispersing.

Estate agent Mr Bird added of the scene in Kington, Herefordshire: "They moved around inside and were almost filling the gaps in.

"The only reason this circle came to an end was that the farmer came in with a tractor and some food."

Since the event he has been searching for an explanation but those experienced in working with sheep say Mr Bird could be disappointed.

Farm manager at Herefordshire College of Technology, Dan Seaborne, said: "I just think they've been fed with dry feed in that shape – you can get snacker feeders now and you tow behind a quad and it drops pellets on the ground.

"I would imagine that's what's happened."

He added: "I think there was a chap in Yorkshire who spelled out 'will you marry me' to his girlfriend in sheep by putting feed down."
