I was recently told by the police to stop taking photographs at Liverpool Street train station in London.

The policewoman was very polite and apologetic, to do with anti-terrorism laws, etc. She obviously knew it was a load of nonsense. She pointed me to the correct place to go and get permission if I wanted to continue.

I find it sad how the civil liberties of millions are being trampled on just on the off chance that somewhere there is a terrorist clever enough to build and plant a bomb but so stupid that they couldn't take surreptitious photos or video of our public places.

Quite absurd; and I do believe the policewoman thought so too because she certainly didn't threaten to take away my equipment.

Very funny Squirl. NLP apologies to readers for misrepresentation.

Thanks for the additional info SJ - I will persue it when I get the time. Here's the photo I did get BEFORE being asked to stop. Maybe it was the Chief illegally parking his car.
