Kent police admit unlawful stop and search of twins, 11

The stop and search of 11-year-old twins at the Kingsnorth Climate Camp was unlawful, Kent police have admitted at London's High Court.

The twins, referred to as E and T, were searched while at a demonstration against Kingsnorth coal-fired power station in August 2008.

Officers searched the twins on the grounds of "reasonable suspicion" they might be carrying prohibited articles.

The police admitted that officers at the scene had misapplied legislation.
