WORK to renew Dunfermline's CCTV cameras is "ongoing", according to Fife Council and police.

In December, the Press reported a spate of bin fires in the town centre.

Bryan Coghill, who owns Jack 'o' Bryan's restaurant on Chalmers Street, claimed at the time that the culprits who vandalised his bins could have been caught if CCTV cameras had been working.

The council responded by saying work to renew Dunfermline's cameras would be completed by March this year.

Work appears to still be in the pipeline, with little update on the project so far.

Safer Communities manager Kirstie Freeman said that the council worked closely with local police to help keep Fife safe.

She added: "We're working in partnership with police colleagues to upgrade and replace CCTV cameras in and around Dunfermline.

"This work is ongoing and is expected to be completed by the end of this year as part of a Fife-wide upgrade programme."

Inspector Neil McGurk, from Police Scotland, said: "Fife Division of Police Scotland works closely with Fife Council in order to ensure that all our local communities are safe and secure.

"As part of this ambition, work is continuing to upgrade the public space CCTV infrastructure across all of Fife."
