I was arrested nearly a year ago just photographing scenes in my home town, Dover. Held in custody for five hours accused of being a pervert for taking "upskirt photographs" because of some allegation made.

I was then issued a summons under the Public Order Act for causing "distress" by my actions, something I was completely unaware of.

I am still awaiting the outcome of my complaint against Kent police.

But I am a professional journalist living and working in China and I have more freedom here it seems.

Why is this idea important?

Stop arresting people, and when your identity is proved by a relative, release people from custody.
