As for photography.....

These guidelines have been issued to all police staff by the head of specalist operations for the metropolitan police service, to assist them in dealing with professional and amateur photographers taking pictures in public places:

Whilst we must remain vigilant at all times in dealing with suspicious behaviour staff also must be clear that:

    * Officers do not have the power to delete digital images,distroy film or to prevent photography in a public place under either power (sections 43 and 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000)
