Journalists covering recent protest activity

09 Nov 2022

NPCC responds to reports regarding journalists covering recent protest activity on our roads and motorways. 

A National Police Chiefs' Council Spokesperson said:

Journalists have a right to report at any form of protest and the freedom of the press is essential. When you’re there and policing, there is a huge amount of pressure to swiftly move things on and it is regrettable that journalists were caught up in that. All protests come with an enormous amount of pressure for policing. Journalists shouldn’t be prevented from legitimately doing their jobs.
