CCTV 'to be used to secure village'

CCTV 'to be used to secure village'

A packed public meeting has argued for CCTV systems to be installed to help solve a local crime problem in Surrey.

The Spelthorne Borough Council-backed gathering gave residents and businesses in the area a first look at where new cameras would be placed.

Those locations all cover access roads in and out of the village of Stanwell, reports Get Surrey.

Derrick Laing, police neighbourhood inspector for Spelthorne, said: "It could give us the ability to spot those coming in and out of Stanwell."

The debate also featured opinion from Stanwell North ward councillor and chairman of the Northlands Residents' Association Spencer Taylor, who is a former army security specialist.

He explained that with the existing commercial CCTV systems already in operation, these new locations should be used to cut off a "big back door" into the village.

Two further public consultations will be held before the cameras are installed.
