Following a social media campaign calling for people to boycott Glasgow's Braehead Shopping Centre in recent days, after a father was detained by security for taking a picture of his daughter, it has been announced that several UK shopping centres will now allow photographs to be taken inside.

The incident at Braehead Shopping Centre saw Chris White questioned by police after taking a picture of his daughter eating an ice cream, which led him to begin a social media campaign that has over 21,000 followers on Facebook,

Now, Capital Shopping Centres has said that it will allow pictures to be taken within its 11 UK shopping centres, including Braehead, the Trafford Centre and Metrocentre in Gateshead.

It will also likely introduce the policy within another three centres in which it is a partner, said the BBC.

Capital Shopping Centres confirmed: "CSC can confirm that we will be changing the photography policy at our 11 directly owned centres and that at the other three centres, which we own in partnership with other companies, we will be discussing with our partners the policy change and recommending that it be adopted."
