Moray Town CCTV Without Power
CCTV in Moray town operational but without a power supply.

Residents in Moray town were shocked to find out that the CCTV cameras in their area are no longer working after the town council sold the Keith Institute building, where the power supply used to be based. Local authorities have since assured residents that the power supply will soon be relocated and that police will increase their patrols in town.
A Moray Council spokesman said: “The power supply for CCTV is being relocated from the Keith Institute to another building, and this is expected to be operational very soon.”
However, many residents fear that officers will find it more difficult to do their jobs and stop misbehaviour in the area without footage from the cameras being available.
Jane Wilson, a member of the Keith Fife Action group, said: “Joyriders are a huge problem here and police do a fantastic job of trying to cut down on the problem but they can’t be everywhere and they fly up and down Regent Street and they zoom round the square so that’s a good reason to have these CCTV cameras working.
“Daffodils were vandalised this Spring and people unknown to us pulled the heads of the ones in Regent Street and pulled some out and tried to shove them into the tattoo shop letterbox and with no CCTV cameras to catch them.
“Police need to have them working to assist them in everything and protect the place so if the cameras were switched back on that would be ideal.”
