How many CCTV Cameras are there in the UK?

After a perhaps more reliable research process, the number of CCTV cameras in the entire width of the UK was put down to around 1.85 million, down from the original figure of 4.2 million.

The more recent figure, based on a more in depth analysis, put the top 0.15 million cameras as being spread out between public transport, and local authorities. This meant, that a whooping 1.7 million CCTV cameras are owned and run by private entities, giving testament to the erosion of civil liberty in the UK, and perhaps justifies the resultant public outcry. We couldn’t possibly comment.

****UPDATED JULY 2013**** 

According to the British Security Industry Association there are between 4 million and 5.9 million CCTV cameras in the UK
