anyone know what the 2 military looking helicopters circling over the river / oxo tower have been doing for the last 20 minutes?

I'm not sure what it is about but the sky seems to be littered with them in this area. I had the day off last week and one hovered around Southwark bridge at about 1pm for about 5 minutes before it started circling the area again. I'm starting to feel a little paranoid!!!!

I'm at work in Marylebone and we had helicopters going between here, baker st and edgeware road all morning, I don't think it's confined to SE1

Seven copies of Devil May Care, written by Sebastian Faulks, were brought along the River Thames on a Royal Navy sea boat escorted by two Lynx helicopters.

Early hours of Wednesday I was out on my terrace at 3:15 am shaking my fist at the sky. What the devil were the 'copters doing at that hour?
