CCTV=State Control

Fewer than one crime is solved by every 1,000 closed circuit television cameras, the Metropolitan Police, Britain’s biggest police force, has admitted.

Each case helped by the use of CCTV effectively costs £20,000 to detect, Met figures showed.

Critics of Britain’s so-called ‘surveillance society’ said it raised serious concerns over how police forces used CCTV cameras to fight crime.

Britain is one of the most monitored countries in the world, with an estimated four million cameras nationwide.
