Central London in facial recognition trial

Recommended Posts

Christmas shoppers could have their faces scanned in central London this week as part of a police trial.

 

The Met says it will invite people to take part in testing the technology rather than scanning people covertly.

 

The trials will be held near Soho, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square on Monday and Tuesday.

 

Privacy campaigner Big Brother Watch has described the use of such technology as "authoritarian, dangerous and lawless".

It might be invasive and undesirable but the UK frankly has a huge problem with radial Islam. Only last year a bomb went off at a local rail station near me and killed many. More measures must be taken.

I think the bigger issue in London is knife crime. 

 

Also which train station attack are you referring to?

Ah fair enough. I hadn't realised how close the two were.

MEN arena is the floor above Manchester Victoria but they share exits.
