Schools have CCTV cameras in toilets and changing rooms
THREE East Yorkshire schools have CCTV cameras in toilets or changing rooms, it has emerged.
Sydney Smith School, in Anlaby, Sir Henry Cooper School, in Orchard Park, which has now closed but is being used by Newland School for Girls, and Hessle High School are all on a list compiled by the civil liberties group Big Brother Watch.
The group asked for the information from more than 2,000 schools under the Freedom of Information Act.
Angela Martinson, head at Newland School for Girls, said the cameras were strictly for security.
