Police are breaking human rights law with the use of controversial facial recognition software, a landmark court case has heard.
Ed Bridges is bringing the first legal challenge on the technology, which has been trialled by forces in different parts of the UK.
Mr Bridges said police started using facial recognition “without warning or consultation”.
He added: “It’s hard to see how the police could possibly justify such a disproportionate use of such an intrusive surveillance tool like this. We hope that the court will agree with us that unlawful use of facial recognition must end, and our rights must be respected.”
