Sophie - I logged on to place a similar message, but I do not have anyone involved.

I sincerely hope that your brother is safe, and that all other palinites in London are ok.

Here's a hug - ()

I hope every thing is alright Sophie Louise, I was just told at work what has happened and I have to say I feel quite sick. I'm just checking all my friends and family are safe too.

I was a little caught up in the aftermath of the Edgeware Road blast as I was at St. Mary's hospital in Paddington for an outpatients appointment. At this stage, we were being told it was a power surge but there were people walking round with soot smeared faces saying "It was a bomb. It wasn't a power surge." The hospital was evacuated of non in-patients and there was no transport so the streets were packed with a mixture of hospital outpatients and tourists lugging round heavy bags. I walked home via Queensway and a cup of tea and have been answering the 'phone ever since I got back. Thank goodness my family are all safe and well.

Sophie-Louise, my heart goes out to you. Please don't worry about not answering his mobile as the systems are jammed and there are a couple of signal blackspots around the city. *hug*

To everyone - please post here that you're safe and well - even the trolls.

Been watching the news. Still in shock. Seeing all the images of the exploded bus and all the people stagerring around was overwhelming and extremely devastating.

Hope that your brother manages to contact you as soon as possible Sophie-Louise, do update us if you can. *hug*

I've just heard on the news that mobile phone networks have been switched off in central London as a precaution against remote bomb detonation by mobile (as happened in Madrid), so maybe that's why your brother isn't answering his phone. Let us know if you hear anything.

My heart goes out to all of you in London!

Best wishes,
