Big Brother Is Not Watching You!

Almost a quarter of all CCTV cameras operated by West Lindsey District Council.

The Lincolnshire Echo is reporting that seven surveillance cameras controlled by West Lindsey District Council are broken and currently not in use.

The authority operates twenty-nine cameras across the district which includes Gainsborough, Market Rasen, Saxilby and Nettleham.

Council officials say repair work on a number of 'CCTV issues' is required but they refused to disclose where the broken cameras are located for safety reasons.

All one hundred and twenty-six cameras used by the City of Lincoln Council and twelve controlled by North Kesteven District Council are currently working.

West Lindsey District Council spokesman Mr. Geoff O'Neill said:
"We can confirm that seven cameras are not working and we are urgently looking at the best way to deal with a number of CCTV issues throughout West Lindsey."
