4 September (Part 2) - Photography is banned in Bexley

Gipsies GipsiesNot only photography but parking is currently banned in Bexley’s Thanet Road car park. I went there this evening before a meeting with the Bexley Action Group and found that a gang of Irish travellers had taken over. They had set up three caravans, it may have been four, I wasn’t allowed to stay and look.

They were not only forbidding parking but they didn’t want anyone invading their new abode on foot either. Anyone carrying a camera was a paedophile and from six inches away their leader bellowed that if I lingered a moment longer both my camera and my face would be smashed. I took a couple of photos while beating a hasty retreat, they are not too sharp as a result.

I think Bexley’s Enviro Crime Unit has a problem, but maybe they will happily condone the invasion of a public space like they did with Bridleway 250.
