Filming constables in a public place

Home Office did not have the information requested.

Dear Home Office,

Is it against the law to record constables in a public place?

is it against the law to record constables while they are talking to me?

if so please provide me with the laws that prohibited me to do so.

also is it illegal to film in a public office? i.e. the job centre?

Yours faithfully,

Mr James Leigh
