The Austrian tourists at the centre of a deleted pictures storm have hit back at police claims that they were not forced to delete their pictures of London buses.

Speaking on London Tonight Klaus Matzka rejected the police’s version of the incident.

Before the TV interview, which was broadcast last night, Klaus told Amateur Photographer that the police claims were ‘unbelievable’.

Klaus and his son Loris maintain that police forced them to erase their images, having told them that it was ‘strictly forbidden’ to photograph anything transport-related.
