AIBU to be a little freaked, living in London?

dontbesillyhenry Tue 23-May-17 21:50:52

I don't live in london but am scared silly

It could be anywhere - we don't know.

We just have to carry on with our lives - what's the alternative?

Military called in ffs.

stillawakeatthishour Tue 23-May-17 21:52:19

This is worrying

Ohb0llocks Tue 23-May-17 21:53:14

Stupidly scary. We're meant to be attending a wedding at a hotel this weekend and I honestly don't even want to go. Petrifying.

stopfuckingshoutingatme Tue 23-May-17 21:53:38

I'm in London too, use the tubes and buses and bridges every day. It's scary, but what can you do?

I don't really see the point on the 'imminent' alert status. Either there's a known terror threat, in which case it's best to eliminate that without drawing too much attention to the fact, or there's not, in which case panicking people will achieve nothing.

Breaking news on bbc.

TrollTheRespawnJeremy Tue 23-May-17 21:55:17

Nothing has changed.

myoriginal3 Tue 23-May-17 21:55:31

Source is Teresa May a minute ago raising the level to critical.

Gowgirl Tue 23-May-17 21:55:34

The threat has been imminent for a long time now, you have to trust our security services and our police and carry on

supermoon100 Tue 23-May-17 21:55:47

Not to take away from the atrocity of terror attacks but statistically you are more likely to be killed or injured in a road accident. Just to put things into perspective

I've just texted my two older lads who are away at university, one's in Manchester. Just to say be careful, be alert and take care.

What else is there to saysad.

according to what source?
Link would be appreciated as still wrestling a hyper toddler who napped too long

myoriginal3 Tue 23-May-17 21:57:18

She just gave a press conference where she raised the threat level to critical and has called in the military to assist at things like music festivals etc.
Critical status means an attack is either underway or imminent.

whereiscaroline Tue 23-May-17 21:57:32

BBC and Telegraph have both reported this.

Nicknacky Tue 23-May-17 21:57:44

Daytona What is the point in that scaremongering?!

LadyGlitterSparklesSeriously Tue 23-May-17 21:58:04

Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck.

That's all I have to say.
