  1. Everyone harps on about CCTV but ni reality most CCTV footage is blurry and poor resolution especially in the dark. You need to spend a lot of money to get good images in low light. I doubt any footage from any shop would be useful.

  2. you would think the shops would help by having cctv coverage of the street, something else kicked off around there only last week, the police cannot be everywhere, shocking cowards these yobs are
