Car accident in roundabout

We're waiting for Bela to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Birmingham City Council,

I was involved in road accident on the 10th July 2017
Between 15.25 and 15:35 pm.

I was coming from Newtown Middleway and i wanted to take the first exit to merge to a38 in Dartmouth Circus roundabout. A Mercedes Vito van came to my lane from the middle lane as he changed his mind and he did not want to take the exit anymore. Suddenly he turned into my lane just before the exit so i couldnt avoid the accident. I hit his right back-side.

I wonder if it possible for you to locate any CCTV footage of the
incident so that I can proceed with an insurance claim as they are denying the accident.

Best regards
Bela Gulyas

Dear Ms Gulyas

I refer to your recent  email, requesting CCTV footage.  This request is
not a Freedom of Information request, it is a request under the ‘Data
Protection Act’. 

Please note In accordance with the Data Protection Act, recorded images
are only normally retained for a period of 31 days, after which all CCTV
footage is automatically destroyed. Only on those occasions where images
are seized as evidence in prosecution proceedings are the recorded images
retained beyond this period.

You will need to contact your insurance company to make the request for
CCTV footage, as Birmingham City Council is not permitted to disclose
information relating to public space CCTV to individual members of the
public. All requests for footage must be made via the police, a solicitor
or insurance company.

Yours sincerely
Corporate Information Governance Officer
