I wasn't slumbering last night, I was walking back from the Bankside restaurant around 12.15 when several police cars zoomed over Southwark Bridge towards the City. Not sure what was happenning, perhaps neither were they because soon after, some of them zoomed back again, sirens still full on. When combined with the extremely noisy night-time road resurfacing works on Southwark Street
it was difficult to talk to the person next to you. How are people supposed to sleep?
