They won't be publicising the account here https://publish.indymedia.org.uk/en/2010/12/470839.html because it gets to the heart of who caused the trouble.
"A few minutes down the road I heard sirens from behind and turned to see police motorcycles weaving in and out of people on the road. I briefly step onto the pavement as they pass, to see a car in claret red with a crest slowly approaching, its passengers' hair mid length and light. "Hey," I shout to my friend "It's Boris!” My friend catches up just in time to hear me correct myself: "Hang on - It's Charles and Camilla!" There was a little jeering but I started laughing as did most of those around me, mostly waving and calling at them. They reacted in kind, even joking with each other.
"The dark Jaguar behind had its doors open, its passenger ready to jump out if need be, and started trying to overtake the royal car, but driving into the backs of people walking on the road. We shouted at them to stop and it was then that people really started to turn on the convoy. Some sat on the bonnet and the driver carried on regardless. I looked back to see how many more vehicles were due, just in time to pull my friend out of the path of the silver people carrier he hadn't seen. Others smashed the back windscreen with a bin. It dawned on me that I should probably expect a bullet any second."
