The service is still being monitored while the crisis is ongoing, to keep the city safe.

The current Government advice on Covid-19 and social distancing means some of their trained volunteers working on CCTV are able to help.

But the gaps are being filled by those who can, such as Salisbury BID City Ranger, Andy Milton.

He's a trained CCTV operator and has been volunteering to help keep the service running in these unprecedented times.

Richard Goodman, CCTV Manager at Salisbury City Council, said: 

"I am very grateful for the extra support Andy and the team of volunteers are able to give so that we can continue operating the CCTV as normal. 

"We need to ensure Salisbury remains a safe environment for businesses and residents and continue doing everything we can to prevent crime and anti-social behaviour. 

"Thanks to our team of volunteers, the message from me is that the CCTV operation is business as usual."

Salisbury BID and the City Council are jointly responsible for funding the cameras in the city centre.
