Photo ban in Rochester Cathedral

Photo bans are becoming more common in Cathedrals – and not just for reasons of religious irreverence, but now for ‘child protection’ reasons.

This prevention of photography of the choir – which, let’s face it, is likely to be pretty blurry in the darkened cathedral – shows the extent to which any photography of children is seen as latently paedophilic.
