Section 60: a most draconian stop-and-search law that plays to police prejudice | Rachel Taylor

PUBLISHED February 6, 2014

This week a woman who was stopped and searched by police had a legal challenge dismissed by the court of appeal. Ann Juliette Roberts was travelling on a bus in September 2010 when a ticket inspector found she did not have enough money on her Oyster card. Roberts failed to provide her correct details, and told the inspector that she did not have any identification on her, which was not true.
