Photographers mass outside New Scotland Yard

Hundreds of photographers have staged a protest outside Scotland Yard against a new law which they say could stop them taking pictures of the police.

 

The law makes it an offence to gather information on security personnel if that data could be used for a purpose linked to terrorism.

 

The National Union of Journalists said the law could be used to harass photographers working legitimately.
