Good Afternoon

Did you know that there was a camera recording?

Have you been charged?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Didn't know there was a camera and no i haven't been changed
Expert:  Leon replied 8 months ago.

If you have not been charged there is nothing to worry about at present. If they have a sign somewhere to say that the place is under surveillance or cameras in use this is all that is required and they have met their obligations.

If there is no sign they cannot use the footage against you.

But you have to wait and see what happens.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance if there is nothing further
