I'm glued to SKy, BBC World, CNN in rotation. Flying into London tomorrow, will have to WALK from Heathrow I guess. Hope you're all OK, please post everyone so we know you're still alive and well.

I'm alive and well. Was stuck on a bus just by Liverpool Street this morning when what seemed like every ambulance, police car and fire engine in London turned up. I had no idea what was going on until I started getting phone calls from my family to check I was okay.

Blackfriars and Westminster Bridges are certainly open.

Waterloo Bridge was closed northbound earlier.

I'm quite near Covent Garden and I'm the army are there, all a bit scary, work are telling us not to go out and apparently making plans in case we have to stay the night! So glad i live in SE1 and can walk.

Jame's link above says that Waterloo bridge and waterloo Rd are closed, does anyone know if pedestrians can get that way?

Glad to hear people are ok so far.

Do you think we should offer spare beds to people stuck?

I'm here - albeit stuck in our office which is behind a security cordon.

If it helps the millenium footbridge is open. Have never been so glad that I can just walk home.

A couple of people who live out of central london have already planned to come home with me tonight. Apparently they're stopping quite a lot of the overground trains from coming into Central London as well ? It looks like a lot of people will be sleeping in the office tonight...
