Street light switch off in Dovercourt town centre leaves CCTV camera in the dark
7:30am Tuesday 29th April 2014 in News
A TOWN centre CCTV camera has been plunged into darkness after street lights were incorrectly turned off.
Streetlights at the top of Kingsway and Marine Parade, in Dovercourt, should never have been turned off as they are under the watchful eye of CCTV, it has been claimed.
Tendring councillor for Harwich east central ward, Garry Calver, said: "It's unacceptable for CCTV cameras to be left in the dark.”
