Unpleasant Viewing

Video is often indisputible and can provide solid evidence for criminal or civil investigations (even if it's for driving above the speed limit). So a spate of recent cases has shown just how powerful a tool it can be.

CCTV pictures from Winnersh Station are being used to track down and identify 4 young people who may have been involved in a case of criminal damage, while CCTV was also used in a case of a fight on a petrol station forecourt where charges were reduced to a public order offence from the more serious ABH.

Meanwhile mobile phone footage published on YouTube gives a visceral picture of a fight which broke out among 'revellers' returning from Henley Royal Regatta.
