Frightening...

...goings on.

I'm sure most of you have seen details of the terrible events that have taken place in London over the weekend - riots, looting, arsen etc.

Well this afternoon we were advised by the police & security services that information led them to believe that Stratford (East London) was next on the hit list. So on their advice the office was closed with all the staff out and on their way home by 3.30pm. As I waited for a train at the station there seemed to be a lot of police about and Stratford seemed to be 'shutting down' - perhaps just as a safety precaution.

Isn't it a terrible state of affaires for things like this to have to happen just to ensure folk are safe................................

Can't help but be scared for you, although I want to be big and brave and say encouraging things. Batten down the hatches..take all the police advice and if it kicks off, come and stay with me.
