Aside from those that reached the demo, one coach from Swindon and three coach loads of protesters from London were prevented from even reaching Fairford. Pulled over by about fifty police. Every person was searched including their bags, whilst being filmed and photographed. The Protesters were then held on the coaches and escorted all the way back to London by three different regional police forces. After placing signs in the windows reading "Help we are being illegally detained", protesters managed to escape their temporary coach cell, when stopped at traffic lights in Shepherds Bush. Leaving via the emergency exits, they ran onto the street, rather than wait for Euston their destination where eight police vans awaited.
