Photographer or Terrorist?

A well known architectural photographer Grant Smith was taking pictures of a public building in a public place (since when was that illegal?) when he was approached by a (ill informed and aggressive) security guard from a local building.
Having declined to give his details, as is his right, 3 police vehicles turned up after he had been reported for suspected terrorist activity.
A full report on this incident is on ITV here
Surely the next stop from here is to issue permits to photographers giving the police full artistic approval?
