Harrassment of photographers

Comment 6th July 2010

Too many perfectly bona fide photographers (especially in London) are being hassled by police officers, PCSO's and private security staff – on the grounds that they are protecting UK against terrorism. What is happening on the ground is ridiculously over the top and not even sensible. Any terrorist would use a tiny camera or indeed a phone to photograph sensitive areas NOT a huge dslr. And why are national landmarks classed as security issues anyway – Westminster Bridge – the Gherkin – Tower of London etc etc.

Badly trained and badly led staff make London a mockery for tourism. What exactly is going to happen in 2012?

Why does this matter?

For the freedom of the hundreds of thousands of law-abiding photographers who are just following a hobby and are no threat to anyone.
