A day after a senior police officer warned of an ''Orwellian situation'' with cameras on every street corner, Merseyside constabulary launched a remote-control helicopter to track criminals and record antisocial behaviour.
The micro-drone is only 3ft wide, weighs less than a bag of sugar and can record images from a height of 1,600ft.
I look forward to the forthcoming court cases just as soon as they've worked out how to point the camera through bedroom windows.
