Vehicle accident and security fears for Deputy Prime Minister

Since the Government's plans to increase student fees and other policies have become public knowledge, Nick Clegg's security has been increased in case a vehicle accident is deliberately caused by an individual or group protesting against the coalition's actions.

The BBC reports that security officials have given Mr Clegg a bombproof Jaguar XJ with a driver and a guard, two police officers and two back-up officers to escort him. These protective measures have been taken in an attempt to avoid the Deputy PM suffering personal injury, as he is now deemed one of the most at risk ministers in the whole of British history.

The car has the highest level of protective covering available and can withstand an AK-47 attack, CS gas, assault rifles and hand grenades. Not only that, but it has a direct link to Scotland Yard's control room.

A police source said of the increased security, "It is unprecedented for a Deputy PM to have this level of protection. The level of personal hatred directed at Mr Clegg has not been seen since the days of Margaret Thatcher and the Poll Tax riots".

If an individual is involved in a road traffic accident which was not their fault, then they may be eligible to claim compensation. The Deputy PM's position is rather different to the usual risks involved with being on the roads but the hope amongst the security staff is that while the Lib Dem MP is in his reinforced vehicle, accidents caused by protestors, leading to personal injury of Mr Clegg, will be avoided.
