Protecting and Serving the People - Police Apology


In August of last year I covered Climate Camp at Kingsnorth Power Station. There was a massive policing operation involving officers drawn from forces all over the country.

The media were filmed and searched entering and leaving the field where the protest camp was.

On one occasion after photographing a rather brutal arrest of protesters who had been filming the police we were detained for over an hour. We were then followed to a restaurant several miles away and were filmed through the window by the police Forward Intelligence Team.

On that particular day I was stopped and searched three times and detained for over two hours.   

This is a copy of the letter of apology I received from the police.

Here is the NUJ statement here
