    Confused... Turkish wills.

    Confused CCTV v Home surveillance

    From what I can gather you can film in public places and it is not illegal in the UK. We are also on CCTV many times a day in town centers etc. Yet if I film someone outside my property on a home surveillance system that violates data protection. Anyone know the specific legalities of all this?
