North Norfolk Council will decide if they'll get rid of their CCTV in a bid to save thousands of pounds.

They currently operate 46 cameras across towns in the county including Cromer, Fakenham and Sheringham. The council say turning the cameras off, could save them around £230,000.

In the council's 24/7 newsletter for 2011/2012, it detailed more than 20 incidents in which the cameras had helped detect criminal behaviour.

The police say they're aware of North Norfolk's review and will talk to the council about their proposals.
