Residents demand Moseley CCTV network is taken down
OUTRAGED Birmingham residents want covert cameras they believe are used to spy on Muslims removed.
There has been widespread anger after supersized lampposts, containing CCTV and ANPR, automated number plate recognition kits, appeared around Kings Heath and Moseley, without public consultation, in April.
Following inquiries by residents it emerged that the cameras were installed using £3 million from a Home Office project, fronted by the Safer Birmingham Partnership, to tackle terrorism and crime in Sparkbrook and Washwood Heath. Residents from Moseley and Kings Heath packed out a meeting on Wednesday and said they were concerned that their wards are being used to form a ring of steel to spy specifically on Muslims.
