A Strathclyde Police spokeswoman said: 'We have received no complaint in relation to this incident.
'We have passed on the footage and will look into the matter.
'In general terms, the police have no powers to stop the public filming or taking photographs, but this can very much depend on the circumstances.'
But they were unavailable to comment on what these circumstances may be.It seems the police are recruiting people who are incapable of following direct orders:
In 2010 a letter was circulated by the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland (ACPOS) that confirmed the public have 'no powers' to stop the public filming them.
The letter, draughted by David McCall, assistant chief constable for British Transport Police, reads: 'I seek your support in reminding your officers and staff that they should not prevent anyone from taking photographs in public.
'There are no powers prohibiting the taking of photographs, film or digital images in public places.
'Therefore members of the public and press should not be prevented from doing so.
'Once an image has been recorded, the police have no power to delete or confiscate it.'We constantly hear - from sites like Insp Gadget - how out of touch the top brass are, how they have no idea of life on the front line, etc. It seems some have decided to therefore pay as little attention to them as they do to the wishes of the general public.
I wonder how long I'd hold my job, should I decide that I knew better than those paying my wages?
