    To tack a question on here, there is a neighbour who has one camera filming the street outside his house, sited in his front room, pointing through the window. It is motion sensored and will film the pavement and either side of the road. I don't know if he got broken into recently. There are a fair number of people in that bit of the street hanging around smoking spliffs and some drug dealing goes on from cars parked up there. The camera is possibly there - and set very visibly -  to put them off. I can sympathise. It's a bit of a dodgy patch.

    However I believe it's not legal to film the street like this and it breaks GDPR laws. If I asked him for the film files he would legally have to give up any footage featuring me.  It's not a comfortable thing to see the lights start to flash every time I go past. I don't like being recorded.

    Your thoughts are welcome. I might put a card through the door noting that it is not a legal practice - if this is true.
