Met. Chief defends photographers

Via BBC News

“We need to recognise that London is an iconic city and people come here to photograph this city and they should be allowed to do it without interference unless there is very, very good reason to suspect somebody doing something wrong,” he said.

“Occasionally, some police officers might get it wrong, PCSOs [Police Community Support Officers] might get it wrong, it’s my job to ensure we get that right balance.”

This is not the first time that someone from the Metropolitan Police have made the point that photography in public places is neither illegal or likely to be a sign of an impending terrorist attack, but when is the message going to filter through to all of the other forces in the UK?
