Police have launched an investigation after an amateur photographer was stopped on suspicion of being a terrorist while on a ‘trip to buy fish and chips’.
Stephen Russell stood his ground when police demanded he delete pictures that he taken of a police officer attending a minor incident in Kidlington, Oxfordshire.
The officer had been called after a gang had hurled a bottle at a passer-by.
Russell said he had taken the photos because it was ‘unusual’ to see such police activity in the village.
Russell, 59, told the Oxford Mail that the officer told him to delete the four images he had captured.
