Dear Birmingham City Council,

I was involved in a car accident where my car, blue Ford Fiesta hit the back right side of a red Citroen which had stopped just after it had changed lanes on Ladywood Middleway, just after the double set of lights (where the road splits two ways into Icknield port road and Ladywood Middleway) on 6th February 2019 at 1.13pm. Please can I request cctv footage regarding this incident for evidence purposes. Thank you

Yours faithfully,

Miss B Kaur

Birmingham City Council

Dear Ms Kaur
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.

The contact details to request this is:
