Couple ordered to stop having sex by talking CCTV cameraJune 13th, 2009 - 5:15 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jun 13 (ANI): A couple were left embarrassed after a talking CCTV camera in a town centre caught them having sex, and ordered to stop.
The pair had been drinking earlier, and when they heard the booming command issued by operators, they immediately stopped and fled from the scene in Northampton.
Northampton Borough Council has talking cameras trained in three town centre streets, which issue warnings about littering, fighting, and street drinking.
While most messages are pre-recorded, there are some specific warnings that are issued by the CCTV operators themselves.
Andrew Simpson, the Northampton Borough Councillor who is responsible for CCTV, said that he was shocked to hear camera operators had spotted people having sex in the street.
“I certainly wasn’t expecting them to pick up that kind of thing,” the Mirror quoted him as saying.
“Clearly, I would imagine these people must have had too much to drink and had fairly low inhibitions.
“But at least they stopped when the camera operators told them too,” he added. (ANI)
