Half of CCTV cameras remain off
Half of the CCTV cameras in Newbury Town Centre remain turned off according to information seen by NBYreporting.
Of the 12 CCTV cameras available for use, just seven are currently active and capturing potential crimes.
It was reported last year that Newbury BID had planned to have all of the cameras turned on in March 2017.
The news that a significant proportion of the cameras are not working, comes just two days after another two handbags were stolen from people in the town centre.
At 11.30am on Monday a handbag was stolen from a member of public on Northbrook Street and between 1.30pm and 1.40pm on the same day a handbag was stolen on Wharf Street.
