Lady Margaret Thatcher leaving Downing Street, 21 November 1990.
‘When Mrs Thatcher announced she was going to resign, most of the press went into Downing Street to see her emerge from No 10. Instead of following the others, myself and Nigel Cairns from the Today newspaper chose to mingle with the crowd outside the gates in Whitehall.
Eventually Mrs T’s car left at speed though the gates, and I took this one frame. As I met the other photographers, I held up the film cassette and proudly announced, ‘I’ve waited 11 years to capture this moment’.’
