Eden was not taking photos prior to being searched, and police did not object to him videoing the search, so this incident does not qualify as an incursion into photo rights. However it’w worth viewing for an insight into the sheer pointless banality of these routine and arbitrary searches, backed up nonetheless by the threat of arrest for non-compliance.
