    But how much did they know - di they know there had been a bomb - and what could/should they have said? Should they have told people not to get on buses - in which case there would have been a higher concentration of people round the tube station, and what if there had been a bomb planted there? I'm not sure if there is a right or wrong thing to say.

    Louis, thanks for that. Have now heard from said relative (seems to be a bit of a delay receiving texts..) and she's fine. As I knew she would be but you know how the panic sets in...

    I was pissed off with this too. I couldn't get on the train at Wembley Park and the staff told us to get a bus to the city. What they should have done is told people not to travel unless absolutely necessary. It was only because I received a call from my mum that I knew the full extent of what was happening and decided to go home.

    Does anyone know if it is okay to walk through central london and through the city, or is it all cornered off?

    People are advised to stay at home or at work.

    I guess when people are due to return home from work other announcements will be made.

    Can't talk for the whole place, but top end of Old Broad Street /houndditch cordoned off, police manning the fence. Probably be able to walk around most of it, just not near any of the stations (crime scenes)
