Bizarre news...
Today - at approximately half past one - a double decker bus drove into the central reservation then into the building next to mine. That sort of thing just doesn't happen every day! From the general lack of concern the emergency services have shown I can only assume that no one was seriously hurt. It must have shaken the passengers up more than a little!

just park it there

Normality will resume as soon as we have worked out what normal is.

Current Mood: surprised surprised
Current Music: the noisy call-centre behind me

You're saying that the driver hit a building?

The driver hit the staircase attached to the building ... saw it from my vantage point on the 4th floor, reported it to the police

You saw it?... What side did he come from? I only heard the crash and saw the end result.

He came round the roundabout, veered into the railings, drove along (scrunched along them), oversteered in trying to go back onto the road, and by over steering, hit the building. He came off the round about too fast, completely misjudged it. I was on the phone to bro at the time, and looking out the window, called the police, they sent the ambulance. Think the bus was pretty much empty, least didn't look as tho anyone went into the ambulance. I later called Romford police station and gave my name as a witness should they need anyone

Mr Perou took it? Looked like it was taken from the AON building?

His mate Steve (think you met him eons ago in Eddies) works in there.

What's his name - I'll credit him for the picture...

don't know his surname ... only know his first name is Steve, and he can drink bucket loads of beer and still stay sober :o)
