Hello folks! did anyone see a rather strange police convoy this morning? turning into the northern end of Pilgrimage street. a normal patrol car at each end, in the middle a strange armoured van that I've never seen before and a dark rangerover... The car at the front was a way ahead stopping the traffic so the van could drive without stopping... very strange...

and whilst I'm at it - anyone know what was going on at The Trinity last night? all cordoned off!

I saw that convoy yesterday, going along Tower Bridge Rd towards Bricklayers. I've seen it occasionally over the years and think it's the Police escorting prisoners to the the courts, probably to the Old Bailey, from Belmarsh. I was once following it on my motorbike and they have a message board at the back of the rear car saying "Keep Back!". There's usually a helicopter following overhead too.

Ah that sounds like it would make sense.
