Anti-fracking campaigners who are filmed by security guards outside oil andgas sites can apply to obtain copies of footage held on them, according to a new briefing.

The document, published this week by the policing monitoring group Netpol, said private security guards were commonly used to try to prevent protest. They often recorded protesters on their phones as “a form of intimidation”, the group said.

But filming in public spaces is subject to legislation and security companies must properly secure and retain any data they acquired.
