Early last week I was travelling Southbound on the M1 between Rotherham and Nottingham. I saw a police helicopter approaching from the south and as it
got closer I saw a huge convoy of police vehicles escorting a heavily armoured prison van.
The convoy had, in addition to the chopper, two marked police cars and a bike upfront, followed by the heavily armoured white prison van with blacked
out windows (much bulkier than a regular prison van), this was followed by two more marked police cars and another bike and then further behind in the
regular flow of traffic was another two 'backup' police cars without there sirens or lights on.
I have no idea who could be dangerous enough to need this much security. At first i thought it could have been the terrorist Abu Qatada who has been
released from jail but he is under house arrest in West London and was in prison in Worcestershire so wouln't have been in this part fo the
Does anybody have any idea who could have been at the centre of this convoy and why they would need so much security?!
