HAMPSTEAD Heath is a naturally secluded retreat and doesn't need military surveillance (Spy cameras on the Heath, H&H May 1). A police spokesman extols the new equipment, saying it will allow anyone on the Heath to be viewed live from anywhere in the world. For the solitary walker as well as the night-time cruiser, this blatant intrusion will destroy the character of the Heath for ever.
