The pair questioned whether it was really illegal for them to simply hold a sign while going for their walk.

'Yes, because obviously it's a sign of protest and it's illegal,' the officer replied.

The pair argued it wasn't illegal to protest, only to gather which they were not doing as there was only two of them.

'I'm not going to argue the point, you either put [the sign] in the bin or I will,' the policewoman insisted.
