British authorities have stored details of almost a million children in the national DNA database, including those of children under 10, the opposition Liberal Democrats have discovered.
The National DNA database (NDNAD) included DNA records of 883,888 people aged between 10 and 17 and 108 records of children under 10.
"The Government’s onward march towards a surveillance state has now become a headlong rush," Nick Clegg said. "As an increasing number of very young children well under the age of criminal responsibility appear on the database it is clear the Government sees no limits to its invasion of our privacy."
Eight percent of all British people, including those who have never been charged or covicted of an offense, have their data stored on the database by the Police.
