Civil rights groups say they're concerned that the official mascots for the Olympics in London, could be seen as an invasion of privacy.
Wenlock and Mandeville were unveiled to the public this week to a wave of indifference. But one of their key features is a single eye that doubles up as a video and stills camera.
"This is a potential minefield" Michael Mansfield QC explained.
"Here you have two essentially playful figures that will be wandering around the country in the run-up to the games and no-one is monitoring what they will film. Not only are there privacy implications, but also ones of national security."
Lord Coe, chair of the London Organising Committee said he understood concerns but re-assured people there was nothing untoward.
"Our intention is not to uncover illegal activity or to film anything that might be of use to terrorists. Everything that's filmed will be censored by the government before it's aired."
He also confirmed that one the games are over, the mascots are being lined up to join the Metropolitan Police's Video Surveillance Unit.
