The Spanish data protection agency has forced the local police to turn off their CCTV cameras outside their headquarters on Avenida Pescia in Nerja. The cameras were installed without authorisation and according to the privacy laws in place in Spain, have to be turned off until such time as they obtain the required permissions.

There are public security cameras in other towns in Malaga province, which are being used in accordance with the privacy laws, in particular the way the data that is captured by the cameras is handled.

It is not known when the police will get the necessary licenses to put the cameras back into operation.
