Gideon,
Sounds like he had a close call. Glad to hear he's all right.

It's been a good few years since I've even set foot in central London, but it's scary to see such pictures from places you know well. That stretch of the Piccadilly line between Kings Cross and Russell Sq. is one I've traveled along many times.

Lets all take a moment and offer a prayer for those in London.
You have my condolences and prayers.

May all this senseless terror come to an end !

I'm with all of you in offering my condolences and my prayers to those who will grieve losses today as well as those who will continue to stand and fight against cowardly extremists.

Nice graphic, Paul. I'm with you there, too.

Yes I must say I agree,
This certainly is a sombre moment. [Linked Image]
However, to quote the Mayor of London:
Quote
Us Londoners, indeed the English people as a whole, are a resilient bunch, we will get through this!.
I have to also say, that the London Emergency Services, performed without failure whatsoever and to a certain degree, they need to take a great tip of thier collective hats, as to their speed and their professionalism, in preventing this incident from becoming worse than what it did, in the aftermath.
An incident like this is every Emergency services worst nightmare, but it just goes to show how prior training can lessen the suffering of those directly involved.

Paul,
I don't mean to carry this on too far, but is there any update on the number of casualties?.
Personally, 1 is too many. [Linked Image]

Another sad day in history. I hope the friends and families of the injured and killed find the strength to get through this horrible time.
