    I returned today and things went wrong when security spotted me. They had driven through from the live side as they said they've had a lot of unwanted attention. I was taken into the live section, and after a short while the police turned up. Their attitude stunk and were very arrogant. They asked me if I knew about arson attempts in the area, suggested I delete my pictures (I won't be), and threatened me with a breach of the peace. Surely they can't arrest me for walking through the grounds? I may seek legal advice as I think they're in the wrong.

    Police talk a lot, the public order act is so vaguely worded you can be arrested for just about anything. The chances of you actually being charged are tiny though.

    Unless it's an active military site or something of the same caliber, they can slap your wrist and bugger off. The only way to charge you would be prove that you have broken in to the place with wrong intentions or caused some damage. They have absolutely no legal stand if you just jumped over the fence and took photos of few collapsed walls.

    The law in England and Wales is much more strict.

    The Scottish law definition of a breach of the peace is "conduct severe enough to cause alarm to ordinary people and threaten serious disturbance to the community".

    It's good that you kept the photos as an evidence of your activities - if they are insane enough to take you to the small claims court, your case will be dismissed in 5 seconds.

    you will find this site is different not governed by normal law unless they have lifted the classification for the area think it was section 77 of the explosives act. Certain public clown explorer a long time back got special branch coming to his door after posting all over the net. Daddy hired a lawyer to get him off !, i believe.

    Never piss about in these sites unless you know the consequences

    I agree with Pincheck. I think that its still a live site. I remember the clown who took photos of this site and I was surprised that our moderator allowed the photos to be shown it on this site. There is a faint chance of explosives still buried and this could be an advantage to terrorists, hence why the police presence. I just noticed that 28DL have removed the post on their website.

    I stand corrected then, still quite enjoying much more relaxed laws here in Scotland.
