Round the clock surveillance for Stockholm

Stockholm police have been granted permission to use CCTV cameras around the clock for the first time, local media report.

A total of ten cameras will be installed at three locations in the capital's suburbs.

The cameras will be operational 24 hours a day, and recordings made with them may be kept for a period of two months.

The license to use cameras in this way will have to be renewed after two years.

The only other place in Sweden where surveillance is conducted on this level is at one location in Malmö, in the south of the country.
