A beach warden, who was identified as 'Beach 8', told a press photographer she wasn't allowed to take photographs of the promenade at Branksome Chine without a licence.
The photographer, Hattie Miles, who works for the Daily Echo had taken photos on the beach for years so carried on even though the warden demanded to see a licence.
The Daily Echo reported that Stuart Terry, coastal works manager at Poole council, said the beach is council land it was 'standard industry practice' for photographers to seek permission before taking photographs. However, he wanted to assure people that it's not their intention to stop or restrict photographers or film-makers using the beaches in Poole.
