Hey guys, not been around for a while. I have conducted a search and found nothing so if this has already been posted can an admin pull this post.
As of Feb 16 2009 if you film a police officer it could end you up in a whole heap of trouble. I don't know if anyone here has had a run in with our boys in blue whilst doing what you do best but a few have. Take a look at this video to see what I am on about.

When I was first told about this law I thought it was just the usual internet conspirasists going over board, but the British Journal of Photography has now also reported it. I'll not post any snippets from theit site but I will link it for you to read yourselfs.

I hope the admins don't mind me linking the other sites here but I feel that people should be made aware of this new law, you never know you might film a copper who's having a bad day.
