British Photographer Wins Settlement

Photographer Andrew Handley won a £5K (about $3,200) settlement from British police after an incident where he was arrested and jailed for eight hours after taking photos of a car accident in 2007. Handley was photographing the accident in Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire for his job as photographer for the MKNews.

UK law states that the police are not to disrupt or prevent the media from taking photographs, so this was a clear violation. Handley’s police record has now been deleted.
