On article Street Photographers test freedom to shoot in London (184 comments in total)

I think everyone comes out of this surprisingly well. Especially the police/PCSOs who seemed to know that the photographers were within their rights and were (almost surprisingly) unfazed by being filmed. That's what I would hope all our police are like. The photographers were reasonable - just stating their rights without being objectionable. The "security" bods were shown to be over-reacting, but not in a hostile sense - as someone else commented, in most cases it seemed to be "I've been sent out to stop/question you". So things have improved greatly over some of the previous "incidents" highlighted here.
Very glad to see that.
