ANPR data to be held for 2 years

From the Register,
Police are able to hold vehicle licence plate data for up to two years, the Government has confirmed.

In response to a Parliamentary question last week, Home Office Minister Paul Goggins said data collected through Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technologies could be retained for up to two years for "justified policing needs".
