City of London police are consulting lawyers over CCTV footage which the force released to Carlton TV and now appears on a commercial video without the police force or TV company's permission, reports The Daily Telegraph (p15).

'There appears to be nothing specifically criminal barring the unauthorised use of such footage, although breach of copyright may apply', continues the paper.

The video, 'Caught in the Act!' is also discussed in The Independent (section 2, p2) where councils, security firms and police forces are reputed to have supplied CCTV cuts to commercial video-makers.
