    This question is especially for those people who go to London. If the tbes are running tomorrow, are you going to go to work, school...? I am thinking of going in tomorrow, just to get on with things, but am slightly worried because of where it is (in the heart of things today).

    My dad wants to go back to work tomorrow, it's 5 minutes away from Liverpool St Station. I don't want him to. Security will be a lot tighter, and another attack isn't likely when the country's on such a high alert. Still, I don't want him to go

    Good, they really could not expect you to work as normal, considering where your uni is and what students there must have seen.
    ..Not many people are replying to this thread, probably asleep, like you should be!

    Might stay awake a bit longer as I'm not going to work tomorrow. I was shattered today a few hours ago, because of working after all that happened (even though it was not too bad, as everyone was sort of a bit less rowdy and stuff)
    For anyone who is going to London tomorrow, check out the website

    www.tfl.gov.uk

    This will give continuous updates for travel info. There is no service past Baker Street in the way of Kings Cross. Though there are buses.

    Depends on the transport situation but if its mostly running, I don't see why not - these terrorists aren't gonna change/affect our way of life and we aren't going to live in fear for the rest of our lives...

    Tomorrow will be the safest day you could choose to be in london. its always the case after any incident. what do you always find at thescene of a crime after its been commited? police. so yea in my view london will be safe as houses tomorrow. in terms of actually moving around the tubes will be down (the lines effected at least) but the buses will be back in service i'd imagine and many of the other lines.

    ONE of the explosions happened 10 mins away from my house.

    One of the other explosions was literally just yards from my college :eek:

    I would have been travelling at this time usually. Thank god today, I didn't.
    Neither did my sister-in-law...we were both very lucky.

    What's with the customised title? :confused:

    tbh London is the safest place to be in a perverse kind of way. Everyone is going to be very alert and sensitive to any weird activity and so forth. Like NEw york after 9/11, they had fighter jets patrolling the skies. Army/police on guard etc.

    It would be best if everyone tries to get back to normal. Of course its going to be difficult with congestion. But its like a two fingers up to these scum that attack innocent civilians if you get back on the red buses etc tomorrow morning

    ticket lady: where to?
    me: *shows my FULL FARE PRE PAID pass*
    ticket lady: ok student, half fare
    me: *blinks in shock* wh-what?! o--kkkk...
    ticket lady: ok...half of $3.50....that'ss....$2.75!
    me: ......that's wro---ok...whatever...here

    hahaha $2.75 is not half of $3.50!!!

    Like others have said, I wouldn't worry about this. Security in London must be the highest it can be at the moment, and the culprits aren't going to hang around are they? They're already going to be on the run, or hiding out...There were warnings in Liverpool though. My mum works in the Royal Hospital, and apparently they were on high alert, and one station warned people to try and avoid town! Not too worried though, I think it's unnecessary panic and hype...

    a nuclear powerplant 3 miles from where I live (and employs 10000 people, EVERYBODY works there!!) was practically closed today and most the workers were told not to go in, just key staff. considering this is in CUMBRIA, that's pretty worrying.
