UK Police Probe Mob Attack On Royals

Post by eva on Fri Dec 10, 2010 11:38 pm

British police have begun a wide-reaching probe into a recent wave of student protests, after the latest culminated in a mob attack on a car carrying Prince Charles and his wife Camilla. Prime Minister David Cameron said he was "very concerned" by the royal security lapse, which occurred Thursday during the most violent of a string of protests against his coalition government's plans to raise university fees.

Charles, the heir to the throne, and his wife looked shocked as rampaging demonstrators broke a window of their Rolls Royce and spattered the car with paint. They intercepted the car as the couple travelled to a theatre in London's West End. At the same time, across the city in Westminster, thousands of angry youths clashed with riot police and tried to storm the finance ministry after the government narrowly won a parliamentary vote on raising university fees.

Clarence House, the royal couple's official residence, would not comment on newspaper reports that Camilla had been hit in the ribs by a stick shoved through one of the car windows which was accidentally opened in the melee.
"But what we are saying is that both their royal highnesses were unharmed and neither received any medical attention," a spokesman told AFP Friday. Cameron said those who attacked the car had to be punished.
