The amount of CCTV around Cornmarket and the High Street - is that not sufficient enough for the authorities and the Police? If that amount of CCTV could not capture the offenders then why is so much being wasted on CCTV controllers, the Police and the rest of the town planners. They should be the ones being held responsible ! Ask them for information not the general public who were not there !!!!
