A Norfolk supermarket has been given the green light to clock motorists as they enter and exit its car park.
Earlier this year, Waitrose lodged a bid with Norwich City Council to fit an automatic number plate recognition system at the entrance of its car park of its Eaton store.
And while the supermarket is yet to specify exactly how it plans to use the system, city council officers have given the all clear for it to be installed.
The camera will be fixed to a post more than four metres off the ground at the car park's entrance off Eaton Street and will be managed by Britannia Parking.
The device will allow the supermarket to record the registration plates of cars as they come and go - as well as monitoring the length of their stays.
