Italian student arrested for filming in London

An article in The Guardian, also featured on Italian national TV news programme TG2, has told of her ordeal after being stopped by two police officers for filming buildings in the Paddington area of London.
Simona Bonomo, 32, an art student at London Metropolitan University continued filming when she was approached by officers who asked her what she was doing and demanded ID. After being accused of being “cocky” Ms Borromeo was threatened with a fine for cycling the wrong way down a one-way street. The two officers then went away but then returned with about six others. The student was then accused of being aggressive, bundled to the ground and arrested. She was then held in custody for 5 hours and charged with a fine of £80 for “harassment, alarm and distress in a public place.”
The Met confirmed that a woman was stopped and searched under section 44 of the Terrorism Act.
