Conservative controlled Cambridgeshire County Council has, reports the Daily Mail "sent undercover council officers to lurk outside a Spar in the village of Melbourn and take notes on the movements of the boys. The evidence was used in a criminal prosecution of the shop’s owners for employing five of the boys without the correct documentation." They used powers under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act that are intended to deal with terrorism. The most astonishing hostility to the enterprise culture from a Conservative Council.
I am now going to email the Council leader Cllr Jill Tuck to ask her for her comments.
