It is an unfortunate reality that businesses are forced to shut due to the quality of their CCTV

Leading provider of CCTV security, AlertSystems, has reported on the future of one of Leeds’s oldest pubs. The Cardigan Arms, in Kirkstall, was issued a closure notice due to issues with their current CCTV system.

Leeds City Council has stated that The Cardigan Arms will be forced to close if the issues with its current CCTV system are not resolved. The news comes at an especially stressful time for pub landlord Mickey Thompson, as the pub has been in the midst of a revival since August.

Thompson has been trying to boost pub revenue by booking live music acts and fundraising for a better quality speaker system. However, his hard work could go to waste as he will lose his job unless the pub owner can gather the funds for new CCTV. Thompson has claimed that new CCTV was merely suggested by licensing officers as there was not originally an official note requesting for the work to be done. It has since received a ten day notice giving the pub owners little time to resolve the issue. On the other hand, a council spokesman stated that officers informed Mr. Thompson of the issues with the CCTV on their last visit. However, despite a number of requests the work was not completed.

The Grade II listed pub, which is on the Campaign for Real Ale’s National Inventory of heritage pubs, may see its last days in operation in the coming weeks unless funding for high quality CCTV is found. As experts in the security industry, AlertSystems take a keen interest in business news. A spokesperson from the company made the following statement. “It is an unfortunate reality that businesses are forced to shut due to the quality of their CCTV.

“However, their implementation is crucial for ensuring the safety of both staff and customers.

Purchasing outdated and low-quality CCTV for a cheaper price could lead to the demise of your business.
