Licence for beach photography - A press photographer was told they needed a licence to take photographs on a beach.
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.
