looking for some advice with regard to cctv. Can someone point me in the right direction for finding information about viewing cctv. Tried looking on the net here but can't find anything that helps me. Basically if I was to request to view footage and it was turned down, is there anyway I can appeal that decision and who do I appeal to? Everything has been done by phone up until now. We're the victims of a crime and yet the law appears to be on the side of the person committing the crime when it comes to CCTV.

If you were a victim of crime, the police look at the CCTV on your behalf therefore you don't need to see it.

Yeah reported it to the Police and they have viewed it but they don't recognise the person whereas we are 99% sure we would.

it dependswho owns the cameras, if its the council you can request a date and time within an hours time frame but they will block anybodys faces or number plates out.......they charge a fee of around £10 per camera i think and you would be told to come to an office and view the video with someone there can take around 30 days

I doubt you would be able to due to all this data protection crap, I'd imagine it would depend a lot too on where the CCTV was from, if on a public street or building then it would be nigh on impossible, however private premises may be easier ie local shop, factory, neighbours whatever then a sympathetic operator may let you see.

I know that as the law stands at the moment that you can request a copy or even view of the piece of the CCTV film that your on, they can not say no but same as others have said they may charge you for it. You also have to tell them date and time frame you reqire.

This all depends on what is on the footage and covered by the data protection act.

If it is you thats on it, you are entitled to see the footage. Funnily enough, the missus purse got nicked just after xmas. The store manager said the cameras showed the guy take it, but wasn't 100% clear. I asked if I could review and as expected he said no..... but angered me when it said it was illegal to show anyone but the police. Red rag to a bull..... and he backed down (eventually) when I said he was acting illegally by refusing to let my wife see the footage under the data protection act and asked for his personal details to make a report.

They had better footage of the guy walking elsewhere in the shop. But despite the police stating they would view and take a copy from Sainsbury, they never bothered to show up, despite a chase up by me.

If you are NOT on the footage, they do not have to let you see it. They may even be breaking the law if they do show it under those circumstances, but not sure.
