WHEN THE BRITISH government decided to triple the cost of college tuition, students in London went on the rampage. They burnt cars, smashed windows and then kicked Prince Charles limousine (and allegedly shot it with paintballs).
There was not a plan for the protests - they began in front of Parliament and then roamed throughout the city.
The photojournalist who created the above image, which ran on the covers of newspapers around the world, was fairly lucky. You can read about his adventure here. It details his good instincts and technical smarts in creating an image of the royals in their car, panicking while surrounded by screaming youths.
