I hope they fell down accidentally a few times during the scuffle.

Hey all,

I was there one of the cyclists that held them till the police arrived.

Just wanted to say it was very encouraging to see how many cyclists stopped and all pitched in to keep the people contained.

Very unsettling seeing it was still day light - what's the world coming to?
