Police who warned man about ’transphobic’ tweet acted unlawfully

A UK court has ruled that police officers unlawfully interfered with a man’s right to freedom of expression by turning up at his place of work to speak to him about ’transphobic’ tweets. Harry Miller, a former police officer, said the actions of police had a ’substantial chilling effect’ on his right to free speech. The court ruled the actions of the police were a ’disproportionate interference’.
