Fareham Shopping Centre bans grandparents for taking photos of grandchildren

Kim and Trevor Sparshott were chucked out of Fareham Shopping Centre and called 'terrorists' when taking photos of their grandchildren.

"The couple were on a four-day break from their home in Spain and wanted to surprise their family by arriving at the centre, in Fareham, Hants, while they were shopping.

But when they went to take a photo, a security guard pounced and ordered them out.

The guard then insisted that cameras were banned because of the risk of a terrorist attack - and barred the bemused couple for life.

Speaking from her home in Malaga, Spain, Mrs Sparshott, 51, said: "I couldn't believe it. I was so shocked.

"He said we had committed an act of terrorism."
