Thanks.

I think he was actually apologising for getting in my way although I was expecting what you mentioned to happen but he was quite polite.

oh that's good to know, I keep in my camera bag a print out of the laws relating to taking photos etc in public but in reality I am not sure what I would do if I was ordered to stop!

I'm also quite familiar with the law regarding my camera in public but if the police want to stop you then you don't have much choice.
I speak from experience here.

A couple of times over the years I've been ordered to stop taking photos of something and explained I was doing no wrong and shall continue and then I just got threatened with arrest on totally made up charges.
