Talking CCTV to apologise

The Guardian:

Britain’s talking CCTV cameras are to issue their first apology for embarrassing a blameless passerby on the day the government announces plans to extend the anti-vandalism scheme to 20 town centres.

Marie Brewster, 26, a young mother, appeared on TV news reports after a camera operator mistakenly thought she had dropped litter and boomed out a reprimand from the control centre in Middlesbrough.

So not only can you be mistakenly reprimanded, but it could also be broadcast on TV.

Nothing to hide, nothing to fear.
