Photographers lodge legal claim against Met Police

28 July 2009

Two NUJ photographer members have lodged a legal claim against the Metropolitan Police over an incident outside the Greek Embassy late last year.

Marc Vallée and Jason Parkinson are seeking an apology and damages from the Met.

Both men allege that they were unlawfully prevented from reporting and assaulted by police officers whilst trying to cover a protest on 8 December 2008.
