They headed along Thompson Road. Some were trying to overtake cars with their horses and traps. A lad was leaning out a car window with a beer in hand shouting abuse at motorists and pedestrians. I'm sure they can't all be arseholes but they just don't help themselves acting like this.Counted sixteen horse and carts in a row go past us as we were walking along the top of the Cat and Dog steps. Loooooooooooong queue of cars crawling along behind them.
