Oh thank you QOQ. I just wanted a factual running report so this is great. I hate being stuck at work and feeling so uniformed. My BF works in Tabernacle St and can only email me later today.

God it feels like it will never end!

dyzzidi Fri 22-Jul-05 15:10:06

I have just read on skynews that the man who was shot this morning had been trailed from his home as a suspect for the Oval bombng and was not carrying explosives today. He obviously was treated as a major threat.
