I was filming the Home office….

While filming the Home Office for some cut-aways,  a security guard interrupted me and said that I was not allowed to film the home office so close up and that if I did not cross the road he would call the police immediately. “You can´t film here. I know the law”, he said arrogantly.

Perhaps if he read the  Metropolitan Police website, he would know the law. It clearly states that “Members of the public and the media do not need a permit to film or photograph in public places and police have no power to stop them filming or photographing incidents or police personnel.”

I did hang around for a while trying to get some footage, but had a group of frantic security guards phoning up the police.

Then I saw policemen coming in our direction, but they headed straight to Neros.

Perhaps the cops are getting the message. But security guards certainly

aren´t.
