Well. What can you say that will do justice to the situation.
I first heard something was up while I was in a meeting this morning, somebody got a phone call before the TV coverage really kicked off.
Just spoke to a couple of my friends in London. There seems to almost be a lack of surprise that it has happened, almost a sense of inevitability. I know that in the lead up to the G8 summit the thought crossed my mind that London might be a bit of a target with all the police efforts focused on Scotland.
One of my friends in London said that although these things were happening just a few miles away, it almost felt like it was in another country.
