    Q546: My neighbour has got CCTV on his property and one of the cameras seems to point at my property, is there anything I can do?

    Many people are installing CCTV in their properties as a home security measure as it has proved to be an effective tool in fighting crime. However the cameras are limited in what they are allowed to capture. This would include the owner's premises and such areas as to protect their property (e.g. car). If the camera is recording you, your family or your property and you believe that this is causing distress then you may wish to seek police advice.

    However, it would be advisable, if you feel safe to do so, to speak to your neighbour to see if it is possible to move the camera so that it does not point at you or your property.
