Southgate - Melbourne

SOUTHGATE'S terrorism-related ban on photographs has been cancelled after a week of public outrage.

Signs prohibiting taking happy snaps have been removed from the popular tourist complex.

 

The signs, which featured a picture of a camera with a line through it, asked visitors not to take photos without prior permission from management.

 

The ban, revealed by the Herald Sun, sparked outrage among the public and politicians.

 

Prime Minister John Howard said it was over the top and unnecessary.

 

State Attorney-General Rob Hulls called the edict ludicrous.

 

Southgate's management company, Savills, said it would now allow tourists and other visitors to take their casual photographs.
