Minority Report comes to Britain: The CCTV that spots crimes BEFORE they happen

CCTV cameras which can 'predict' if a crime is about to take place are being introduced on Britain's streets.

The cameras can alert operators to suspicious behaviour, such as loitering and unusually slow walking. Anyone spotted could then have to explain their behaviour to a police officer.

The move has been compared to the Tom Cruise science-fiction film Minority Report (AHEM - Philip K Dick Story), in which people are arrested before they commit planned offences.
