Royal Family
As the Royal Family arrived and left the St Mary Magdalene church in Sandringham last Sunday the usual crowds arrived. However, this year, the ones who had cameras had their effects looked after until they left.

After the incident, Chief Inspector Stuart Offord said the "error" was made in his absence and that the matter was dealt with as soon as he heard about it.

Even though there’s signs telling visitors that photography is not allowed on the Sandringham Estate, this is the first time cameras have been seized.

The news comes after the Queen’s lawyers recently contacted newspapers, asking them to not publish photos of the Royal Family taken by the paparazzi.

It's crazy how ordinary people taking pictures are persecuted in the name of anti terror. I'm sure a terrorist would use Google-Earth or a little camera phone.
