CCTV coverage regarding the Salisbury and Amesbury Poisonings 2018

Peter Beswick made this Freedom of Information request to Wiltshire Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Wiltshire Council.

Dear Wiltshire Council,

1) Please let me know if the Council have retained CCTV footage of the days involved in the poisoning and those related to it.

2) Please also let me know all locations of Council CCTV Cameras in the Salisbury Area and which were working (footage recorded) and those that were not.

For Clarity: I understand that the police have seized evidence regarding these incidents and that may be used in Court Proceeding. I am not asking for details of what the police have taken, I just want to know if all recordings taken by the Council CCTV system are still in the possession of the Council.
I am interested in the street CCTV footage and the traffic one’s

Yours faithfully,

Peter Beswick

FOI, Wiltshire Council

Dear FOI,

Request for Clarification

In your initial response of 9 Oct to my enquiry

"1) Please let me know if the Council have retained CCTV footage of the days involved in
the poisoning and those related to it. "

You stated

"All CCTV footage in relation to the March incident has been handed to the Counter-
Terrorism Police to deal with the investigation in Salisbury. "

Please Clarify

Do you still have copies of everthing that you handed over to the police?

Have you retained the original footage or copies of it? Is that footage still in the Possession AND Control of Wilts Council?

Yours sincerely,

Peter Beswick

Dear FOI,

I am still waiting for information regarding the Traffic Cameras

Where they were situated?
Were they working?
Who now controls the information, Wilts or Salisbury City Council?
Is the information still held by the Council? (or were ALL copies handed to the police?)

Yours sincerely,

Peter Beswick

Dear FOI,

Please answer my original request

Please let me have the information of the Traffic Cameras

And

Did the Council retain copies of the footage passed to the police and if so Do the Council still retain it or was it passed to Salisbury City Council with the transfer of ownership of the system

Yours sincerely,

Peter Beswick

FOI, Wiltshire Council

Dear Sir,

As previously stated, Wiltshire council handed over all footage to the police.

We did not retain and do not hold any of the footage taken by the CCTV cameras in Salisbury.

We do not and never have operated traffic cameras in Salisbury or anywhere else in the county.
