Word got around so lots of photographers turned up an a Saturday morning to photograph the high st, a mate and myself included, and as we walked around the high st taking photos, he remarked to me, "You know what Dave, I am a little disappointed we have not been arrested?
I am also reminded of Ken Livingstone having a go at security and police when making a film,
I remember that!
