Anti-terrorism laws gone mad?
A security guard in Braehead shopping centre near Glasgow questioned a man who was taking pictures of his young daughter eating an ice-cream. The guard told him that photography in the mall was "illegal" and demanded that he delete any photos he'd taken while there. When the man told him he'd already posted the photos to Facebook, the guard summoned a policeman, who said that he could confiscate the phone under the UK's terrorism laws. The policeman took his details and "he was eventually allowed to leave."
