Yes my mum is on the cctv footage.
But does it show someone else though on the CCTV?
Yes it does. It shows the people who made her fall, people who helped her and that she was made to stand in an area where there was no barriers ( another issue). The Police are bot pressing charges although they are saying things did not happen the way my mum recalls which us causinf her psychological distress.
They previously showed the footage to my sister.
I have not seen it nor has my mother. My mother is trying to sue and the footage would be beneficial for this and to clarify what happened exactly.
Its a tough one this - on the one hand she has a right to see it under the Data Protection Act. But on the other hand if it shows other people then they would need to be redacted or the CCTV refused because it would breach their rights under the Act.
On balance I do not think the Police would provide the CCTV
However all is not lost, if you seek a Court Order in the County Court Order they can disclose it
There you can apply to the Court for an order.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you for your help
