Big Brother cameras covered up in Birmingham’s Muslim areas

It appears that the covert surveillance cameras that were installed using counter-terrorism funds in the heavily Muslim areas of Washwood Heath and Sparkbrook in Birmingham have now been covered up pending wider consultation on their use. Congrats to the Guardian who originally broke this story. The Guardian story sparked anger among Birmingham’s communities and elected councillors who said they had been misled by the police about the use of the surveillance cameras.
