West Midlands Police said it has removed all covert “spy” cameras installed in areas of Birmingham with a large Muslim population.
More than 200 – covert and overt – were put up earlier this year, paid for with government money to tackle terrorism.
An independent report into their installation said public consultation was “too little and too late”.
Chief Constable Chris Sims has apologised and said none of the cameras was ever used.
