Following my earlier post on the UK Police campaign that is only going to produce more hassle for photographers, things are slowly beginning to move.
Over the last couple of weeks, there have been questions in the press from the public, an early day motion started to pressure the Government to clearly state what rights photographers have, and the police have vowed to act on photographers complaints/fears. However, there are still instances of many ridiculous situations where people are getting stopped.
