I appreciate that time is short. Before I was stopped and held to account for taking a photograph, seven people in my constituency had written to me expressing concern. One had been taking a picture of a cycle lane. Also, Danny Fitzpatrick, a photographer on the Croydon Advertiser, has been stopped repeatedly. Surely the power is being used without proper discrimination by the police service.
