Pics from a photojournalist - so I guess they can't really be used here. Still, the shot of riot police assaulting Santa Claus deserves wider circulation.

Added some more pics. It's very London-centric at the moment though, would be good to get pictures from around the country..

Kate to use car damaged in British student riots
Published: March 23, 2011

LONDON (AFP) - Kate Middleton will travel to her wedding in a Rolls Royce limousine that was damaged when student protesters attacked Prince Charles and his wife Camilla in December, royal officials said.
Staff are repairing the claret-coloured 1977 Phantom VI after it was spattered with white paint and had a rear window badly cracked by rioters opposed to government plans to raise university fees.
“It’s not extensive, it’s just minor damage following the incident before Christmas, it will be ready in time,” said Colonel Toby Browne, who runs the Royal Mews which looks after royal horses, vehicles and drivers.
Kate is marrying Prince William — Prince Charles’ son and the second-in-line to the throne — in London’s Westminster Abbey on April 29 in Britain’s biggest royal wedding for 30 years.
Browne added: “One of the problems (is) it’s such a special car there are details that have to be reproduced and are not available off the shelf.”
“The claret paint is specific to (all royal) cars and certain bits of glass had to be made, but it’s really a minor detail you won’t notice.” Charles and Camilla, his second wife, were unhurt in the assault on the car on December 9, which prompted a high-level security review.
