The number of town hall-controlled Big Brother CCTV cameras has trebled in a decade, it emerged last night.

There are now 60,000 cameras trained on members of the public by council snoopers – one for every 1,000 people in the UK.

The huge increase has cost hundreds of millions of pounds, including at least £170million in Home Office grants – although there are doubts over whether the cameras actually help catch criminals.

Many images are so poor they cannot be used to identify violent thugs, while police have admitted as few as one crime is solved for every 1,000 cameras.

Privacy campaigner Big Brother Watch uncovered the scale of CCTV use by local authorities using Freedom of Information requests.
