CCTVs are taking a step closer to the science fiction idea of the Minority Report with a predictive system being installed in a British city for the first time.

The system is able to spot “unusual” incidents like somebody loitering or a vehicle travelling too fast.

It then alerts CCTV operators so they in turn can assess the situation and decide what action – if any – needs to be taken.

The system is being set up to watch quiet areas like car parks, stairwells or corridors in buildings and streets at night-time.

This is to allow an operator to monitor more cameras without having to watch each screen simultaneously.
