Photo Collage of 22 March 2003 - Coach Passenger experience

The photos in these collages were taken by passengers on the coaches. Note the empty motorway on the side of the coaches. This was because the police were preventing raffic in front and behind from reaching the coaches.

This image shows a bus passing an exit on the Motorway. The sign in the window has been blown up for clarity of viewing. We had many signs in the windows. It was our only means of communicating with the police. Note how police positioned their motorcycles in order to block the coaches from leaving the motorway. In addition to the police you see here, there were frequently police at the front, back and sides of the coaches in cars, vans and motorcycles.

This is a photo from within one of the coaches showing one of the signs that was placed in the windows of the coach in order to communicate the passengers' sentiments.
