What exactly does all the cctv coverage in this town actually do?? They never seem to spot "activity" such as this despite the widespread coverage. There are cameras on the stanhope road/duke street/abbey road roundabout and even one right opposite to Bliss above Daisies tearoom on the corner of Barnard Street, there are a further 2 watching the entrance to Club B (if the thieves made their getaway down barnard street they could have been seen by them too) and yet still nothing seen??
