LINKY Bags are to be put over scores of surveillance cameras in parts of Birmingham after allegations residents were not properly consulted. Safer Birmingham Partnerships (SBP) said 218 cameras had been put up in Washwood Heath and Sparkbrook, where there are large Muslim populations. The cameras were financed by a counter-terrorism fund, but the SBP said they would tackle all crime. The cameras will not be used until consultation has been carried out. Ri-ight. Has anyone here ever been "consulted" about CCTV?
