Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50086301
  • Date: 30 July 2007
  • Public Authority: Surrey Police
  • Summary: The complainant requested CCTV footage relating to the Amanda Dowler (“Milly Dowler”) murder in 2002 from Surrey Police (the “public authority”). Having refined his request this was reduced specifically to 5 minutes of footage taken from the “Birdseye CCTV” camera on the Unilever Building on Station Avenue from 4.05pm to 4.10pm on the day that Milly Dowler went missing. This is believed to cover the last time Milly Dowler was seen. The public authority refused to provide this information citing that the information is exempt under section 30 (investigations and proceedings conducted by public authorities). The Commissioner is satisfied that the public authority appropriately cited the section 30 exemption and that the public interest in maintaining this exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosure. Therefore this complaint is not upheld.
