Explosions in London

July 07, 2005 ・ Blog

A tumultuous day.

My first knowledge of the explosions was on being evacuated from Stratford Station in east London. Stratford is where the Olympic Games in 2012 will take place, so outside the station the remnants of yesterdays celebrations at winning the hosting remain, along with TV crews, which are suddenly having to report somewhat less triumphant news.

I can feel the day already going down in mythology – from London’s celebration to London’s disaster.

EDIT: Wikipedia has collated an excellent page about the explosions – as a single source, it’s better than the news sites right now.

EDIT: An account of being on the Liverpool Street tube train that the first bomb went off in.
