London shuts down…

Given I was in London only yesterday (thus the pacity of blogging from me) this morning’s news has a greater shock value. Now it seems the tube network is effectively closing down. The death toll is likely to rise during the day, but current estimates are about 20. It appears at least one bus has been ripped apart in Russell Square. It looks like a co-ordinated attack on London’s transport infrastructure.

Up-date: We’re hearing via the BBC that all public transport in Croydon has closed. Mainline stations are being closed too. And the M25 is said to be choc-a-block with people trying to get away from the city.
