A comprehensive resource for safe and responsible laser use
A laser is aimed through the trees…
… and towards the camera lens
A protester said the laser beam was coming from the direction of the HS2 compound, and crossed the busy A413 roadway, posing a danger to passing vehicles.
HS2 reviewed the video. They said "none of HS2’s security teams carry laser pointers or pens – it would be irresponsible and unsafe to do so." They also pointed out that the video is not clear regarding the laser location or the person who is using the laser.
From the Bucks Free Press
Two other persons were illuminated by the laser but did not have eye effects.
Thames Valley Police are seeking information about the exposure.

NOTE: This appears related to protests over HS2 railway construction through the scenic Jones' Hill Wood area of Buckinghamshire. A few days later, a protester claimed that HS2 security personnel aimed a laser at their protest camp in the woods.
