An amateur photographer who was arrested while taking photographs of posters on a building in London has revealed images similar to those that, he says, led to an anti-terrorism search last week.
Last Thursday Karol Berezowski said officers handcuffed him, before taking him by car to Hounslow Police Station where he was held for three hours.
The photography enthusiast said officers told him they wanted to search him using their anti-terrorism powers.
He claims police forced him to the ground before bundling him into a police car at around midday on Hounslow High Street.
Berezowski had been using a Leica M6 film camera and claims to have been taking pictures for his portfolio.
Berezowski said he was charged with a public order offence after ‘refusing to take his hands out of his pockets’ when police carried out the search.
He was handed an £80 fine but plans to take the case to court.
The Metropolitan Police last week would only confirm that a man was arrested for a ‘Section 5’ Public Order Offence and refused to comment further.
