NUJ condemns photographers' police anonymity deal

The NUJ has condemned a deal struck by Fleet Street photographers to pixelate the faces of Met Police firearms officers.

Responding to a story broken on this morning, NUJ general secretary Jeremy Dear said: “It is not for the photographer to decide when identities should be protected. That’s a decision for editors, so if the police are serious about addressing this issue, they should be approaching picture desk editors and bodies representing the relevant journalists’ interests.”
