Passing through Waterloo on the bus last night, I noticed that every lamp post in the bus interchange (the bit by the IMAX) had at least three CCTV cameras fixed to it. Are these real or is this some kind of subversive joke/art installation? Looks like complete overkill!

Is it an extension of the Congestion Charge zone camera trial previously seen on Borough High Street perhaps?

No, these cameras are fixed to the lamposts and only point at the pavement around the various bus stops. It gives the effect of making sure every part of the bus interchange is covered, but looks very ugly and intimidating.

...or makes you feel safe, depending upon how you look at it, I guess.
