Mole, Brighton & Swindon being closed will really affect people on this forum?

Underground & bus network shutdown.

Latest on South Eastern trains:
Trains terminating at London Bridge
Cannon Street CLOSED
Waterloo East CLOSED
Charing Cross CLOSED

I'm off today so updates will not be very frequent.

Too soon to organise this... surely G8 the more likely focal point?

Got to get to London Bridge 1st & police advice is stay in your offices.

I'm just round the corner from Liverpool Street, on London Wall, and we dont have TV, or radio, so everything is coming from the Net, which is heavily clogged and slow - certainly on sky.

Its possible I may be facing a night in the office, I guess (I gather Victoria is closed as well, based on Setrains site)

Breaking news on SKY that the the bus explosion was a suicide bomber.

If that's the case then I suspect the same with the tubes.

Watching it live on BBC news.

ALL tube lines closed.

Not yet confirmed that Tavistock Square was a SUICIDE bomber, but looks likely.

We've heard stories in our office of a second bomb at Liverpool Street and of a suicide bomber at Canary Wharf - have there been any other reports on this anywhere?

Personally I'd say sod work, sod the police and get walking to London Bridge.

When they finally give the all clear & everybody sets off for home, you're asking for more trouble.

Tony Blair talking live on TV.

Leaving Gleneagles now, to return to London within minutes.

It'll be interesting tosee what Sir Bob has to say.

Looks like G8 totally scuppered, which may have been Al Quaeda's intention.

Tony Blair was live @ midday - he'll be returning to G8 tonight though.
