    It is possible that this might just be overreaction. Security must be very high-strung at the moment.

    However, I would not be surprised if we saw other attacks over the following days.

    You think? I'd be more inclined to say it'll go the other way. No doubt there will be something of a crackdown with people who are being watched being arrested just in case.

    Probably unrelated but yesterday about 4pm a part of Canary Wharf was completely cordoned off. Practically the whole private security unit was out with police and transport police only inside.

    Now on one hand there was a fire truck there too which may have pointed against anything terrorist related!
