Smile for the camera


Spy camera sales soar in war on burglars

A growing number of householders are installing Big Brother-style CCTV cameras in their gardens and driveways to deter burglars and keep tabs on visitors, according to new figures.
Sales of DIY home security kits have risen by around a fifth in the last year, fuelled by the perception that police no longer take domestic burglary seriously, industry experts say.
The rise has also been triggered by concerns that conventional burglar alarms are unreliable and usually ignored by neighbours.
A poll of 1,300 Maplin customers found that two thirds were buying cameras to catch and deter burglars, while nine per cent said they wanted to use the cameras to spy on workmen in the home.
