Auto Surveillance in the UK

From The Independent with a tip to Drudge.

Senior police officers have described the surveillance network as possibly the biggest advance in the technology of crime detection and prevention since the introduction of DNA fingerprinting.

But others concerned about civil liberties will be worried that the movements of millions of law-abiding people will soon be routinely recorded and kept on a central computer database for years.
Given the current debate in the US over civil liberties, I can imagine this would cause a few headaches over here.
