I have been contacted by a resident of Friezland Lane, Walsall Wood, who understandably would like to remain anonymous. They have noticed that a CCTV surveillance camera has appeared in the lower end of Friezland Lane, mounted high on a lamp post. It apparently appeared one day without warning.
The resident doesn’t know who installed the camera, or why, and who’s watching the pictures, and is understandably somewhat concerned. I share their concern. I’d also be a bit worried that it’s at bedroom height in a residential street.
I’m appealing here to whoever may be responsible – Walsall Council, West Midlands Police or whoever – to come clean with the local community. I had a quick scoot round, but couldn’t find any more such devices, but if you know of any, please do drop me a line.
