Springchicken Thu 07-Jul-05 13:43:27

Kings X closed due to emergency services using it.

They are hoping to re-open so people can make their way to other stations

PooPooGirl Thu 07-Jul-05 13:44:02

Just want to echo the other who have mentioned giving blood.

Please give in the coming weeks (agree they will be snowed today!) if you haevn't gven before have a look at their website for who can/can't donate.

karenanne Thu 07-Jul-05 13:44:09

do not travel to london if not important.

london stations will reopen as soon as they can.

overground stations will stay open if open now unless there is more security alerts

QueenOfQuotes Thu 07-Jul-05 13:45:02

emergency advice here

dottee Thu 07-Jul-05 13:45:23

Just to say my thoughts are with all MNers especially those who live in and around London and/or have family and friends there as well. It's so terrible and, if you don't mind me saying so by watching it on TV, surreal.

Thomcat Thu 07-Jul-05 13:45:36

Sorry Kid, not sure which of the 5 threads to us to see if all London mums are ok.

MrsGordonRamsay Thu 07-Jul-05 13:47:59

Link here to Blood services, very good questionaire under who can give

beatie Thu 07-Jul-05 13:49:26

I heard, on local radio news, that Brighton station was closed due to a suspect package. The package was destroyed with a controlled explosion anout an hour ago. I don't know if the station has been re-opened yet - but that was the reason for it being closed down.

QueenOfQuotes Thu 07-Jul-05 13:52:12

just had a look at it and apparently I'm not able to give blood because in the last 12 months I've had sex with someone who has been sexually active in parts of the world where HIV/AIDS is very common (including Africa) - ie my husband!

Blu Thu 07-Jul-05 13:52:14

ThomCat there is a 'check in' thread for London MN-ers, many many confirmed safe and secur.

WideWebWitch Thu 07-Jul-05 13:52:36

PooPooGirl Thu 07-Jul-05 13:53:40
