My video of undercover cop car is on The Guardian website today

My exclusive footage is on the Guardian website today. I recorded the car which an undercover cop used to blockade a road to kick start the mass protest in London in 1999. The cop dumped the car at the junction of Upper Thames Street and Queen street place. This is what it looks like today.


 




The Guardian wrote beneath the video;
Footage from 1999's Carnival Against Global Capitalism in the City of London shows a car alleged to belong to undercover policeman Jim Boyling being used to prevent police from reaching the protest. Forty-two people were injured and £1m worth of damage was done when the protest turned violent. The Met said it lost control due to a lack of police information on the protesters' plans
