There’s no law prohibiting people from travelling between tiers. And as we’ve warned for years, there’s not even a specific law for ANPR.
This is not policing by consent.
We must stop the growing surveillance state and this civil liberties landslide.
Silkie Carlo, Director of Big Brother Watch said:
“This is not policing by consent.
“There’s no law prohibiting people from travelling between tiers, and in fact not even a specific law underpinning the mass surveillance system that is ANPR. We’re now living in a growing surveillance state and a civil liberties landslide.
“I’d urge North Yorkshire Police to retract threats of border checks and use police officers’ time more wisely.”
