There’s been a lot of concern in the UK about members of the public and journalists being restricted in where and what they can take photographs of in public places.
Where previously there hasn’t been any significant limitations, there is now much concern that the Counter-Terrorism Act 2008 contains a clause that allows for the arrest of people taking photos “likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.”
A definition that broad could lead to any photographer being arrested.
The NUJ arranged a mass-photo taking this morning outside New Scotland Yard, our man Mike was down there and
will be reporting back shortly. has now published his Section 76 Photographers Scotland Yard Protest: Report.
