Council go into reverse over CCTV car

THURROCK Council has decided to park their decision to purchase a CCTV for use by traffic wardens.

The decision was made by deputy leader and portfolio holder, cllr Val Morris-Cook at a meeting of the council cabinet last night (Wednesday).

Cllr Morris-Cook said: “In the current climate, we just can’t justify an outlay in the region of £120,000.

“This would have come from a loan. There must be a better way of doing this, that won’t be a burden on the tax payer.

The car was intended to be driven around the borough by civil enforcement officers targeting hotspots such as primary schools and lorry parks.
