In the United Kingdom "the police routinely invoke anti-terror legislation to prevent photographers from carrying out their work, and photojournalists are constantly filmed at public gatherings and their details kept on an ever-growing database." And this police activity is also no increasingly being used against tourists and amateur photographers.
