No CCTV despite second human faeces incident

By timesecholife on in All News, Latest News

A district council has stated that it will not be reinstating CCTV in a Moorlands village – despite there being a call for it following a second incident of human faeces being left in a public place. The appeal to “Reinstall the CCTV Cameras in Forsbrook Square” was posted on the 'Blythe Bridge & Forsbrook – The Place Where We Live' Facebook page on Sunday (August 2) following human faeces being found on the outside of a property.

A district council has stated that it will not be reinstating CCTV in a Moorlands village – despite there being a call for it following a second incident of human faeces being left in a public place.

The appeal to “Reinstall the CCTV Cameras in Forsbrook Square” was posted on the ‘Blythe Bridge & Forsbrook – The Place Where We Live’ Facebook page on Sunday (August 2) following human faeces being found on the outside of a property.

Among the comments a spokesperson for Forsbrook Parish Council said: “SMDC (Staffordshire Moorlands District Council) had the CCTV taken down when the car smashed into the pole.

If everyone contacts their community safety team to pester for its reinstallation it may well have an effect.

The more people who contact them the better.”

The Times & Echo contacted SMDC for a response to these concerns in the Forsbrook parish and regarding the campaign for the reinstallation of CCTV cameras in the area.

A spokesperson for SMDC said: “The camera was removed after it was badly damaged after being hit by a car.

The (district) council commissioned an independent review of its CCTV system and this concluded that the camera at Forsbrook should not be replaced.”

A spokesperson for Forsbrook Parish Council told the Times & Echo yesterday (Tuesday, August 4): “It is disappointing that the district council did not feel that there is a need to reinstate CCTV in the parish.

We would welcome any conversation in the future regarding this.”

This incident of human faeces being found left in the open within the community of Forsbrook parish is the second such incident within the last few weeks.

We reported last month that human faeces had been left dumped on a public bench in the Blythe Bridge Recreation Ground on Thursday, July 9.

The Forsbrook Parish Council spokesperson said yesterday: “Yes this is the second incident within the parish and the council is utterly disgusted by it.”
