Street photographers prevented by security from legally taking photos

Six photographers were given a different area of London to shoot for the London Street Photography Festival, and unfortunately met an amount of resistance from security and building managers. Fortunately the majority of the matters were solved in a calm, collected manner and, after involving the Police on a couple of occasions, the photographers were shown to be acting well within the confines of the law.
