“Terrorists” actually kids TV presenters out filming “Dorkhunters”

While filming some link material for CITV’s Toonattik, presenters Jamie Rickers and Anna Williamson foudn themselves in a rather sticky situation… thanks to the Anti Terrorism Act.

Despite the full film crew and kids walkie talkies, and yes the already mentioend blue spangly hair dryers, because they had “flak jackets” on, they were stopped and warned under the Stop and Search provision of said law.

Rickers said the police, “had to say ‘we are holding you under the Anti-Terrorism Act because you’re running around in flak jackets and a utility belt’, and I said ‘and please put spangly blue hairdryer’ and he was, like, ‘all right’."

Hat tip to the Guardian.
