PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Wetherspoons has been accused of "a gross invasion of privacy", after installing CCTV cameras inside the toilets of one of its pubs. The customer, who noticed the camera above the men's urinals, said that he was "shocked and outraged" at the discovery.

. Wetherspoon spokesman, Eddie Gershon, said: ”CCTV is in place in both the men's and ladies' toilets at the Van Dyck, Bristol. The cameras do not cover the cubicles. "The cameras in the men's toilet were designed so they did not capture images of the urinals. The decision to install the cameras was taken to promote customer and staff safety. "It augments the existing CCTV system in the rest of the pub which is in place for the same reason. Signage alerting customers to the cameras is in place in both sets of toilets." It is not the first JD Wetherspoon branch to receive complaints about cameras in the toilets - a Newcastle pub also faced similar criticism in 2020, as did a Reading pub in April 2022.
