CCTV on Wanstead High Street

Rumours that installation of CCTV cameras on Wanstead High Street was imminent appear not to be true.

The organisers of the campaign against the proposed parking regulation changes told Wansteadium that the rumours were circulating, and that there were fears the cameras would be a precursor to the introduction of Pay and Display parking.

However, a spokeswoman for Redbridge Borough Council told Wansteadium that the council had no knowledge of any such plans.
