We Were on a RV 1 going towards Tower Bridge, last night at about 10.30-11.30 pm, when three silly drunk young women got on the bus near the Tate/ new Office building/ cafe district and then one of them argued for about 10-15 mins with the Driver when he heard over his radio that Tooley street was shut. She wanted her 90p back. I think he was trying to explain to wait for a RV1 following behind who would know the diverted route. She then fell backwards on to the pavement and thankfully stopped whining and stumbled off with one of her friends. The Bus Driver behaved admirally as the information unfolded on his radio especially when a middle aged man called him a f.....g fool for turning onto London Bridge where in fact another RV1 was waiting for our Driver, instead of right into Tooley street. I hope these people are ashamed of themselves.
Meanwhile a security Guard at Hay's Galleria
said he believed there had been a stabbing, but he was waiting for Police to come to see a fellow guard who had been "Right-handed". All the buses coming along Tooley St seemed to be affected, I do not know if one was affected by the incident, the area opposite the Hilton was cordoned off and lots of Police doing their job.
