    Surprised this even made the news. I had two bikes stolen from CCTV covered spots in Newbury, never made the news, got told the CCTV was too low resolution to make out a face. Even the the point where I followed the guy the first time when the bike re-appeared, and gave police running commentary of where I was, they still couldn't get their backsides in gear to prevent it disappearing again, which it did. Thank god I no longer live in Newbury!

    2019 and we still use low resolution cctv cameras. Unless cameras deliver clear images, there is very little point in having them.
