FOLLOWING the recent story that a man was told to delete photographs of his daughter taken in Braehead Shopping Centre in Glasgow by Police and Security staff, the Scottish Government has today announced that shoppers in every shopping centre in Scotland must wear "virtual reality" glasses when entering the premises.
Chris White of Glasgow was approached by security staff after he was seen taking a picture of his 4 year old daughter eating an ice-cream in Braehead Shopping Centre. He was then cautioned by police who threatened him with anti-terrorism laws before allowing him to leave.
A spokesperson for the Scottish Government today said: "We have introduced a fool-proof scheme to allow shoppers and families to have the same shopping experience without the worry of potential terrorists and sex offenders. All shoppers will be made to wear virtual glasses which will have a real-time video of the centres and use GPS to track where they are exactly in the centre. They can rest assured that nobody will be looking at their children or trying to plan a terrorist campaign with these goggles on."
The scheme has been criticised by man claiming it to be "too expensive" and "silly."
Douglas Mackie, 54, was in Braehead today trying out the new goggles and he said: "I kept bumping into everyone. People thought I was either drunk or a pervert."
