During the Euro 2004 Football tournament England were defeated by Portugal. This resulted in a large number of the local Portuguese population taking over a whole street in celebration. But when they met disappointed England fans a stand off occurred resulting in some acts of violence. The Police arrived in riot gear (possibly a first for Jersey) to keep the two factions apart.

Having got pictures of the huge crowd celebrating in the street and various shots of Police officers restraining fans, I saw the opportunity for a more atmospheric shot. A line of Police officers were preventing England fans from going near the Portuguese fans. Shooting at a quarter of a second I managed to get the shot I wanted.
