I would assume they were obscene photographs, can't be illegal otherwise?

I don't know the child photography laws in the UK, but based on the short news item I wouldn't make that assumption. Further, the arrest was made based on the complaint of one witness, this seems a bit weak at this point with insufficient information.

If it were obscene photo's, why would the children behave in such a matter while waiting for the bus. I think they were just waiting, so there were no obscene pictures to take in the first place.

And further, the man was arrested because the witness thought this type of photo's were prohibited. What is her definition of prohibited pictures? Where is the witness now? Did the children complain or even notice the man?

Unless the actual pictures show differently it seems there is no case, no victims, no witness.
