Covering the G8 protest for Sky - after a long day we ended up outside Charing Cross Police station. I d some trouble with a couple of scutters already. We were just at the end of a 'live' when one of the scutters makes a lunge for Mark White - he dealt with the bloke robustly and I, thinking that we were no longer 'on air' followed with the camera... 'Don't you fucking come near me...' whoops. The police, who saw the whole thing, were very sympathetic. One of the protesters' legal observers came over and tried to take notes about the incident. Poor lad. He given the facts and sent on his way. Shortly afterwards the protesters, who'd until then had been chanting 'Fuck the fascist police' tried to complain to the law about us being rough with them.
