Response from London Underground
London Underground would like to thank the reporter for raising
The cameras at Cannon Street are all in working order. It is believed that the concerns outlined in the report centre around the recording and playback of the CCTV images. Recently there was an assault at the station where it came to light that not all of the cameras were recording and that the playback facility was withdrawn from the station sometime ago.
The recording system has since been checked and all faults have been rectified. A procedure has also been implemented for the recorded tapes to be checked to ensure good quality recordings have been taken.
In addition staff have been reminded that within Rule Book 11, 'Station Management' section 3.2 it states that the Supervisor should carry out certain checks daily on CCTV and recording equipment between the hours of 02:00 and 04:00.
