bbc saying final casualty figures approx 180 - 120 released, 8 still serious

Thomcat Thu 07-Jul-05 13:49:49

Where is the link where it accounts for all London mumsnetters?

At least 20 dead. Oh God, shit feel sick man.

My thoughts are with all thoise who have been involved or have loved ones involved. i know i won't get rid of this know until I see D at home tonight. He's just wandering around soho at the monent.

My thought also go to those who lost loved ones in the 9/11 disaster. Knowing how we all feel now I think how New Yorkers must have been feeling on that awful day.

I can't give blood yet as i'm pregnant. Or can i now at 16 weeks today, can i give blood now?
