Accessing CCTV images
Under Section seven of the Data Protection Act, individuals can access CCTV images that we hold of them by submitting a Subject Access Request.
Only images of the person requesting the information can be supplied unless all other individuals who may be identified from the CCTV images have consented to the disclosure. All other personal data which may identify any third party will be concealed or erased.
The fee to make a subject access request is £10.
Further details on how to submit a Subject Access Request can be found below.
