The guidance comes following the case of Bridges in which the Court of Appeal criticised the South Wales Police Forces use of live facial recognition software. TPP has covered the Bridges appeal in depth.

The Independent considers privacy advocates comments that the use of the software “is a hammer blow to privacy”.

Sky News also highlights privacy campaigners comments that the software “will turn our streets into police line-ups”.
