The security operation at this week's G20 summit was thrown into chaos last night when it emerged that the entire network of central London's wireless CCTV cameras will have to be turned off because of a legal ruling.
The Department for Transport (DfT) has ruled that Westminster council's mobile road cameras - a third of the authority's CCTV network - "do not fully meet the resolution standards required" and must be switched off by midnight tomorrow.
The blackout begins on the eve of the summit, when world leaders arrive in the capital and protesters take to the streets.

The protesters will ahve their own recording devices, so any violencetoward them by TBTB will be on record, have no fear.
But it is well sus, just before the G20, they "realise" that all CCTV is useless?
I call BS.
Working at Bank I'll have a good view of the 'protest' from one of the higher floors, I'll be watching the protestors , So if I spot any 'unruly' behaviour from the Policy Farce then I'd tape it
The DfT said it has not prevented the use of the cameras for any other purposes but added that the cameras need to be upgraded for parking enforcement.
