An operator monitoring city centre CCTV pictures from Steelhouse Lane Police Station in central Birmingham alerted police officers, after a car driver lost control outside the Birmingham O2 Academy concert venue. The vehicle overturned and ended up upturned at a potentially hazardous location, near an underpass, on the often fast-moving Bristol Road in the early hours of the morning on Saturday 18th June 2011.
Clubbers and revellers just leaving the O2 Academy venue gathered at the scene. The car, according to an eye witness report, had overturned and carried on moving across two lanes whilst on its roof.
The incident was quickly attended to by police and highlights the value of remotely viewed digital cctv images in enabling the emergency services to respond quickly to an incident.
