    Fucking heartbreaking given how much the building itself is a part of what makes it so special.

    Ahhhh, fuck, fuck, fuck :(

    editor, are these your photos or are you getting them elsewhere? Just wondering if you're on the scene.

    Jees, how very sad. A beautiful building. There were plans a foot to do it up and move whats left of the wandsworth museum there.

    They're great photos but that's cold comfort. It's a bloody shame to see the BAC go up like that.

    I was actually shaking because I was trying to hold back the tears. I love old Victorian buildings like this, and seeing the tower collapse was horrible. Some twat behind me starting clapping and laughing. I wanted to deck him.

    All around me there were workers and locals in floods of tears watching the fire. It was horrible.

    I can only imagine.

    I'm sure others have a far closer and more profound relationship with the BAC, but it really is one my favourite places in London. At least we know there will be a lot of support in the rebuilding effort. It'll have such an impact on their plans though :(

    Blimey - it takes a special sort of wanker to applaud a burning building - what a cunt :mad:
    One of my best friend's got married there - it's a beautiful building.
