No photography.


As a keen amateur photographer, I read with concern articles such as THIS showing a disturbing readiness of the Police to stop, question and even arrest someone on the street for merely taking a photograph. With increasing frequency there are reports in the press of police using the Terrorism Act (2000) as a pretext to stop and search photographers, in public places.

What could possibly be the danger in taking a picture of a building or a protest?
