A council in Norfolk has voted to get rid of their CCTV cameras to save thousands of pounds a year.
Cabinet members at North Norfolk District Council say they will scrap the cameras, but agreed to let affected towns run and fund the service themselves.
The town councils now have 6 weeks to come up with a proposal to run the system independently should they wish to keep the service.
Cameras are installed in Cromer, Fakenham, North Walsham, Sheringham and Wells.
North Norfolk council is looking to withdraw the cameras by March 2014.
