Facial recognition was used on crowds attending a Beyoncé concert in Cardiff to scan for paedophiles and terrorists.

South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner Alun Michael said searching for potential terrorists at such events had become normal since the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing.

He said paedophiles were also targeted as "there would be very large numbers of young girls attending that concert".

Mr Michael described using such cameras as "entirely sensible".

Appearing before MPs on the Welsh Affairs Committee, Mr Michael [size=inherit]defended the use of the artificial intelligence (AI) technology outside the concert


Facial recognition use by South Wales Police ruled unlawful.
