This is what I was told:

Section 70 of theTerrorism Act came into force making it an offence for anyone to take, publish etc. photos of police officers (and other security services staff) likely to be useful to anyone preparing an act of terrorism. If proven the offence carries a maximum sentence of up to 10 years!

I have had a look at your photo and it does not appear to me to be useful to anyone preparing an act of terrorism.....Although those people in the background do look kind of suspicious. I think they are looking at a street map and possibly even shopping vouchers! There must be a hotline we can call?

Yes, there was a policeman behind this one helping out two Italian tourists find their way.

Anyway, Google look like they are the biggest help to any terrorist organisation with their new street views of London and other cities....

Ooh, you live on the edge!! It's going to be interesting to see how this law pans out.....my guess is there will continue to be lots of pics of cops on flickr and elsewhere (yippee)

Well, Stuart, the policeman outside 10 Downing Street had a laugh when I mentioned the new law (which he obviosuly thought was a nonsense) but such a law DOES make it even more interesting to have a go... doesn't it?

And when I get back to the UK I intend to test this bloody draconian law to its full. I do wish GB and co. would just get out and make way for real Labour they are a disaster looking to enslave the citizens of the UK further in a lie of terrorism - much of it the making of the gvt anyway.

How can a nation sleep walk into being surveyed and listed and tagged and identified almost 24/7. It never was like this until Blair, Brown and their cronies came to power and lied to the whole country putting the fear of God into the gullible population.

Oh God I could go on rant over and thank God I am living in Asia.

I just don't understand why the good people of Britain put up with it? Maybe they are just so happy about having gay rights, cheap alcohol, the Premier League and X Factor that they just don't care.
I am continually shocked and disappointed about the RELENTLESS erosion of personal liberty. So often I hear people say that if you've done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear. That might be true for now, but if you get the wrong government in power in future and this will all sound very naive.
One of the reasons that so many Jews were removed from Holland by the Germans was that the Dutch had the best system of registration of any country which Germany had invaded...

its section 76 of the counter terroriem act, i'm waiting for clarification on the what the act means, but if you take it as read, Charles could arrested if someone downloaded this photo and used it to plan an attack.

Two of the latest things one i would never had belived it if it didn't happen in front of me, I was in Tesco the guy in front of me went to pay in cash, and because it was over £100 they asked for photo id, and one of my customers was stopped from taking photos of his 14 year old son playing football

Yes, well, I was stopped last year (around this time) from taking photos of my 12 year old nephew pleying football - 'because not all the parents had signed the relevant form'. This was in London.

I paid cash to stay in a cheap Etap hotel last week and again they wanted my ID. The girl said it was company rules, but I wonder about that. In Italy, they like to have your passport when you stay in a hotel, this being a left-over law from the Fascist era...

Buy paying cash in Tesco? That is absurd. I love paying cash, especially in small shops. It means that THEY don't know how you spend your money and the small shopkeeper can hide some of his/her earnings from the tax man...
