Just an honest question - how can one view the CCTV under the guise of 'Data Protection'?

Doesn't seem to be logical to me, but then the law rarely does.
CCTV footage can constitute 'processing of personal data' under the Data Protection Act 1988. If somebody appears on CCTV they become, effectively, a 'data subject' and thus entitled to the protections offered by the DPA.

A data subject has the right of access to any data held about him/her (with limited exceptions) - this includes being able to see any CCTV footage in which they may appear.
So there you go, you learn something new every day. Thanks for that. :ohmy:
