[efoods]An amateur photographer taking pictures of Christmas lights was questioned by police under anti-terror laws.
Andrew White, from Brighton, was taking pictures in a busy town centre in nearby Burgess Hill when he was spotted and followed by two Police Community Support Officers.
They stopped him and asked why he had been taking pictures and if he was a professional photographer.
Mr White, 33, asked why they wanted to know and was told it was to do with counter-terrorism legislation.
