We hear the sirens first, and then the first police car slides into position diagonally across the road to stem the flow of traffic, quickly followed by another with sirens howling deafeningly. Next, two heavily armoured prison vehicles carrying would-be martyrs roar around the corner and down towards Woolwich Crown Court with two additional cars picking up the rear. Before we realise what we’ve witnessed the moment has passed, but I can’t help thinking there’s something chilling and disconcerting about being in such close proximity to those who would happily have us blown to smithereens in the name of religion.
