London Hit

Well it has finally happened London has been hit by terrorists. It appears to be a well coordinated attack. Shut down the tube, get people on the buses, strike the buses.

I work very close to Euston and thought something weird was going on when I was walking from UCL unnion to my building. When I was crossing Euston Road, police cars and fire engines were going both east (I suppose to Kings Cross) and west (Edgeware Road). I thought that was odd, but thought nothing further. At work though, the sirens kept coming and coming and then we are in the situation now ... there is still not a lot of information coming out.

It was strange that they blamed it on power surges initially.

It was always going to happen at some point, but it sounds like the London public dealt with it calmly and were mainly annoyed about the delay. Eye Witness:
"People didn't really know what was going on, they were just huffing and puffing and saying how annoying it was," she said. "People don't seem to be panicked, but there's so many police and ambulances coming into the areas. People are just concerned, and some are just annoyed at the delay."

Anyway lets hope too many people are not killed but unfortunately it looks like some people will be. I did not think that they would hit the buses.
