Recently in London Bombings Category
July 7, 2005
I set out for home at around 6.30pm, fully expecting the streets to be thronged with people walking home. I was wrong.
The staggered departure from London, with many people heading home from 4pm onwards seemed to have take the pressure off, and the streets were busy without being packed. As I approached London Bridge station, it was getting positively quiet.
Congratulations to Transport For London for getting the buses and trains running again so quickly.
The office is a strange place to be right now. We're only a few minutes away from one of the bomb locations and everyone's pretty twitchy. Small crowds occasionally gather around the big flat screen TV in reception, listening to the latest news and statements.
Some people are pressing on with the issue - it's press day for us. Other are surfing news or trying to contact friends. At least one member of the editorial team has a friend in hospital.
In the background, sirens are heard every few minutes.
It's grim, grim stuff.
