On the surface of it, it seemed like a simple enough Special Assignment for the Love Police; simply get Special Agent Lauri (Love Police, Holland) to spread some love on the megaphone at the indoor shopping centre of Canary Wharf, wishing everyone a happy new year and telling them all (reminding them?) of their power.
All we had to do was stand around her and make sure the security did not attack her. A sort of passive wall if you will....

As soon as the security arrived, they were big guys! About as big as me, and lots of them! I did my best to carry on filming as they punched, grabbed, and tried to rugby-tackle me, but it wasn't easy. They began straight away with physical assault!
Anyway, as they couldn't quite hog-tie me up, they moved onto trying to break the camera (it's quite terrifying when an enraged private security guard grabs the viewfinder of your new camera and tries to twist it off) - this was my main concern, as it was you guys, the viewers which got the camera for me - IT IS OUR CAMERA, and the eye of the Love Police. Anyway, it survived, and I only bled a little from the scratches.

Lesson learnt: Turn up with more people, and keep cameras safely a few metres back for when they get aggressive (if they aggressive).
At the end we all stood there out of breath, I felt no anger at the security, and we hugged. My crimson blood on his collar was quite impressive.
