Inconspicuous Ingenuity 2014 - Escorted by the Met Police Special Escort Group
This is the definitive film on the world-renowned Metropolitan Police
Special Escort Group. Charged with protecting and escorting heads of state,
government ministers and the Royal Family through London and the south
east, the unit is one of the most secretive in Britain.
Filmed from a number of vantage points across London, this 30 minute HD
film places you in the seat normally occupied by the principal VIP in the
motorcade, giving you a unique view of the tactics and operations used by
this media-shy group.
Journalist Antony Loveless, who has extensive experience in the police and
defence sectors, was given unprecedented access to the SEG and accompanied
them on a number of escorts to produce this film. The result is
‘Inconspicuous Ingenuity’, which includes all-new footage of the
group’s operations filmed from the ‘hot seat’. Highlights include an
epic mid-afternoon run across central London, taking in many of the
capital’s iconic landmarks, filmed from inside the lead Bentley in a
motorcade consisting of eight vehicles and escorted by five riders. It also
incorporates re-edited film from an escort in 2000 featuring a running
commentary by the driver, one of the SEG’s most experienced members.

MET Police Fail - When enforcing a rule it helps to know it first! #opsafeway
#operationsafeway Don't get me wrong, I absolutely and fully support the
Police showing some presence to improve cycle safety and awareness! It's
great! But it winds me up when those who are supposed to know and enforce
the rules and are paid to do so - and let's face it, they are standing
there to enforce one simple rule - by their own admittance don't even
appear to know the specifics of that rule themselves! And this is by no
means an isolated case! Misinformation like this only leads to even more
hostility between cyclists and motorists because people will automatically
assume that any driver stopped inside an ASL is just simply ignorant and
breaking the law, no matter how they ended up in that situation. This can
already be seen in numerous videos posted on YouTube by others who don't
fully understand the rules surrounding ASLs themselves.
In this case the bus driver did exactly what the law required him to do: He
approached the junction on green and as he entered the ASL box the lights
changed so he stopped before the second stop line, instead of crossing on
red and ending up in a yellow box junction. Meanwhile the Police Officer
wasn't watching the situation nor did he witness the lights change (which
is actually a requirement for a potential ASL offence to be valid) as he
had his back turned to the junction and was engaged in conversation with
his colleague. He then proceeds to tell off the bus driver who hadn't
actually done anything wrong and probably made him feel somewhat
embarrassed in front of a bus full of passengers who wouldn't have known
what really happened! When I pointed out to the officer that the bus was
there perfectly legally he responds with "You seem to know more than me".
It just strikes me as wrong when someone, as an officer of the law, is sent
to do a simple job such as this one, yet isn't familiar with the rules!
Especially since these boxes have been around for many years now and it
isn't the first time I have seen Police Officers / PCSOs wrongly give out
verbal warnings in these kind of situations!
Dear MET Police: If you are going to be out and about for cycle awareness
or "Operation Safeway" please do something actually useful, like get on a
bike and deal with the real cycling issues on the road such as dangerous
overtakers, red light jumpers, tail-gaters and what have you! Standing
around at junctions like lamp posts does nothing whatsoever to improve
cycle safety, especially if the people giving out the advice don't even
appear to have fully understood the rules themselves or, as in the case of
PCSOs, aren't able to stop or ticket offenders... Enforcing ASL violations
are really one of the least important aspects of improving cycle safety in
my opinion. What's more, it would probably be cheaper and more effective to
educate the public about ASLs by running a TV campaign, rather than
devoting so much manpower to a task with such limited benefits.
