Areas of Law / Property

Recently we discovered that our neighbour has had a CCTV camera trained on our back garden for the last two years. We sent her a solicitor’s letter requiring her to move it within seven days, but we can’t afford to take the matter further and the camera is still there. We can’t cope with the thought of her spying on us; is there any advice you can give?

There’s no specific law protecting an individual’s right to privacy. The right to privacy contained in Article 8 of The Human Rights Act only exists as against public bodies. It’s possible you could ask the police to intervene under the Protection from Harassment Act if you could show that the camera was causing you alarm or distress. Alternatively you could plant a conifer in front of the camera.
