A controversial new website which allows citizen spies to plug into the nation’s CCTV cameras and snoop on shoppers from home has sparked major privacy fears.

Internet Eyes will pay keen-eyed viewers up to £1,000 to scour thousands of CCTV cameras across Britain looking for law-breakers.

The private Devon-based company, which launched on Monday, will stream live footage from shops, businesses and town centres to subscribers’ home computers across Europe.

The video vigilantes who catch the most criminals each month will be rewarded with cash prizes.

Internet Eyes provides a subscription service for businesses and shops.
