22 April. 'Even city yuppies,' wrote a newspaper today in 1989, 'have been seen with trays of eggs on their passenger seats, ready to pelt unsuspecting passers-by.' The egg fusilage began the previous month, when elderly people in Hayes, Middlesex, had eggs hitting their windows or aimed at them in the streets. In mid-April, Kerry Mofatt, 17, and her boyfriend David Jordan, had eggs thrown at them from a speeding car in South Yorkshire. One went straight into Kerry's eye, damaging the membrane beyond repair. That same week, there were three facial injuries caused by eggs flung in east London.
