Police call for review after journalists detained for attending UK protest

Culture Correspondent

The Prime Minister has said it is “vital” for journalists to do their jobs freely “without restriction”, as police called for a review into the arrest of journalists during protests by Just Stop Oil.

One of them, photographer Tom Bowles, was held until the early hours and had his home searched by officers.

He was released with no further action following extensive inquiries and now plans to take legal action.
