Police secretly photographing 14million motorists a day and storing images for two years

No lawmaker has been involved with the police compiling this horrendous database.

Will they stop sending our images to the computer? Under Nu Liebore? What do you think?

Police and the Highways Agency have previously claimed that ANPR cameras on the roads do not transmit images of drivers.
