View Full Version : Sirens

Everywhere in London.

All the time.

Whats happening?

Is it cells being shut down? (someone came into the office today, late and said he his street had been cordoned off by armed officers weilding sten guns)

Is it suspect packages?

Or (not joking here) have the police been told to drive up and down with their sirens on to underline their presence.

Old street is like the Keystone Cops!

Suspect packages I think, some of them anyway. The missus got evacuated off her bus the other day because of an unclaimed bag; police had to cordon off the road while things got checked out - cue two or three cars+sirens whizzing round.

There have been about 80+ incidents since last Thursday. London Bridge, Waterloo, Victoria have all been closed. Bank was this morning, Bond Street, and I think some others.

Generally, travelling by tube across London at the moment is like a zonal game where your route suddenly has to change when a red light shows a station inaccessable.
