Video footage given to the BBC for their use. My comments below are not supported nor endoresed by the BBC. The comments below are my own.

I was on my way to deliver this footage to the BBC in Regent Street when I was detained under section 60. I had started recording on my camera before the police approached me and they forced the camera from my hand and held both my arms as if I was a criminal. I was asked for my details but refused to give any until I had been told what law and what crime I had committed.

The officers could not tell me what crime but were only able to use Section 60 which is a stop and search power. Everyone has the right not to give their details during a search. They then asked me if my bank card which they took from my pocket belonged to me. I told them that it did and they arrested me for Suspicion of Handling Stolen Goods. (The card belonged to me).

Before my arrest I had arranged to give my footage to the BBC and a BBC reporter booked my name with reception. I was followed from Soho by two police officers in uniform. I was detained and arrested on Regent Street close to the BBC building. I found it strange how they would decide to detain me before I could get to the BBC.

After I was released without Charge and without Caution after 4 hours I promptly made my way back to the BBC in Regent Street and was finally able to pass them this footage.

I also want to point out that many people have been arrested over the last two days including Charlie Veitch who is well known for hugging the police (Love Police) who was arrested yesterday. No one knows exactly what he was arrested for but the footage I have just seen on the BBC of a play right being arrested along with another man who was wearing fancy costume. Apparently its illegal to wear fancy costume when the royal family are doing something.

"Marksmen from the Met's specialist CO19 firearms unit are understood to be on a 'shoot to kill' footing and special forces are expected to infiltrate the crowds."
