Oh, tee hee indeed

A spy camera, estimated to cost £10,000 and designed to catch fly-tippers, was cleared by council workers after it was concealed in a rubbish bag.

The expensive camera was placed inside a black bag beside a notorious illegal fly-tipping site. The disguise was so good that workers for Chichester District Council, West Sussex, cleared the camera believing it was genuine rubbish.

"Because the camera had been hidden in something that looked like rubbish, they cleared that away as well," said John Cherry, the deputy council leader.

  1. An innocent question but how did these bozos manage to spend so much on the equipment? Lowlight TV cameras & hard drive recorders are cheap, off the shelf, technology these days.

    Oh, no doubt the actual equipment cost about £1000. The other £9000 was to pay for the focus groups, trials and consultant’s fees for recommending this method…

  3. In Georgia, they put concealed cameras at certain roadside locations–also to catch illegal trash dumpers.

    The first person caught on camera was a county sheriff meeting a local gal for an oral sex session.

  4. Julia-Lots of female county sheriffs around these days…….ummmm…well, probably not in Georgia.

    Do you laugh (because local government is populated with the same kind of idiots as the central one) or do you cry (because someone’s council tax is going to go up due to this)?
