When Julian Assange was charged at Westminster Magistrates Court, he arrived in an unmarked police limousine, almost entirely unnoticed by the hordes of photographers waiting outside. Their attention had been taken, instead, by a different car – the decoy, all screeching sirens and flashing lights. "I said no one would ever fall for that," mused Detective Sergeant Mel Humphreys.
