    Good point - PCSOs do not have powers of arrest, so if she actually said she would arrest him then she was well out of order.

    Not the same as a police warranted arrest, which I would have assumed had I been in the situation, was what was being implied.

    Maybe, but surely

    is somewhat at odds with

    How can you have reasonable grounds to suspect someone is committing an offence if you have no idea what offence you want to arrest them for? :confused:

    sadly didn't get long to talk this morning on bbc radio nottingham, just roughly state what happened, Grant from I'm a photographer not a terrorist made an appearance which was a bonus, one things for sure speaking on the radio is surreal id rather stand in front of them in a public place :)

    Was he corrected, or is that now the "official" version that's gone out over the airwaves?

    What we don't need is "but that policeman on the radiio said it was illegal!"

    Do you know how to do the special Chad pose for any photo's they take of you?

    Have you considered raising it with Alan Meale? He's quite eager to "champion the rights of the honest man" these days.

    How could he be corrected...Andy Whittaker doesn't know the law (despite what he thinks)
    He brushed on the subject of photographing kids but didn't say it was illegal.Almost but not quite. To be fair to him he was very supportive of photographers (in general) but did (in a round about way) say it was a two way street- respect on all sides...which happens to coincide with my view;). Praise for the diplomatic way in which he said that the PCSOs were gonna get their asses kicked (again he didn't say that..he implied that;)).
    Win win situation today...for a change.

    Is the Chad pose same as Nott'm Post pose...looking up at the camera as the tog is standing on a step ladder....:D

    That's my worry. This policeman was there as the expert and to give the definitive answers on what is and isn't allowed.
    If he's giving out information that's wrong, then it's not helping matters at all.

    We are but simple folk, none of your fancy stepladders here.

    The Chad pose is a handshake, but with the two of you forced uncomfortably close together, shoulder to shoulder and facing the camera. The hands should be at chest level. If you can look slightkly off camera, with an expression that looks as though you were about to say something, then you get a bonus point.

    I thought the interview with Super Intendant Winter from Nottinghamshire police was very fair, but this grabbed my attention from the interview at 1:56...
    Are we going to be made privy to this alternate version of events?
