A Teenage pupil has been withdrawn from her school after CCTV cameras were installed in the pupils’ toilets.

Anthony White, from Llandysul said the cameras at Ysgol Dyffryn Teifi in Ceredigion were an “outrageous invasion” of his daughter Jade’s privacy. Jade, 14, said: “I am not going back while the cameras are there. It must be against the law to have them there.”

Mr White said: “The school is being pathetic. They don’t need security cameras in toilets – certainly not in schools.”

Ceredigion Council said it had installed the cameras after incidents of “major concern”.

Spokeswoman Anwen Francis said: “Any such viewing of CCTV footage is undertaken by senior members of staff having Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) clearance.”
