An amateur photographer who was arrested after taking pictures of posters in west London has revealed the photo he took immediately prior to his arrest.

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 photographer had objected to a police search under anti-terrorism powers.

Berezowski claimed police forced him to the ground before bundling him into a police car at around midday on Hounslow High Street.

Immediately after he was released from police custody Berezowski told Amateur Photographer that he was determined to fight the case in court.

However, yesterday he told us that he has agreed to pay the £80 fine he was given by police for a ‘Public Order offence’.

He believes that hiring a lawyer would prove too costly.
