Just wondered if anyone knew why I had so much trouble getting home tonight/this morning.
I got the train from Surbiton to Waterloo just after midnight from a friends party and after having obviously missed the last tube decided to get the train from Waterloo East to London Bridge.
When I got to Waterloo East I was informed trains non stopping at London Bridge, no reason given.
So I trudged back to the taxi rank at Waterloo, after waiting in the queue for a while I was turned down by 2 taxi drivers after asking to go to Shad Thames
because of police closure of bits of Borough High Street
and Duke street Hill. Due to trouble at the SE1 club on Weston St.
Eventually one driver agreed to take me and yes there were police closures. You could not turn off Borough High Street
and pass Guys hospital, neither could you turn right onto Duke Street hill.
However there did not seem enough police to indicate a major incident and I just wondered if anyone else had trouble or knows why this happenned?
Call me a nosy parker but Im just interested!
