Spent an hour trying to get through to Ms Chaos this morning as some w4nkers have decided to play with thier outdoor fireworks in the city.

Hope all the London members of BM are OK?

Well it's more serious than a few fireworks & hope there are as few casualties as possible. Lucky we are a resilient isle and do not respond to such things, unfortunately we have far too much experience in these matters.
As you say I trust no one from the circle here has been caught up in it. Maybe itís a thread that should be closed as things can be taken so easily out of context.

Everywhere is closed. No public transport at all. Lots of roads closed. Does anyone know if Waterloo is still open?

Pot luck Matt.
Some regional stations are closed as well, Swindon is one that was on the radio as evacuated due security alert.
Buses are running in outer London, Maybe get to the river & get a Boat up to Putney or somewhere further upstream then connect with the transport. But traffic is horrendous.
