*Heads Up* Terror Threat in London Today 16/05

Right, I don't want to alarm anyone, but I've just spoken to my Wife who's working in Canary Wharf today.

She's taken a phone call from a colleague who told her that she has "heard" (don't know where from) that there's a credible threat of a terror attack in London today.

She has also just spoken to a friend of ours who is a police office in Scotland Yard who confirmed it and said to stay off of the tubes and buses and away from enclosed spaces.

That's all the info he had/could share, so I just thought I'd pass it on as you never know.

Sorry I don't have any more info and as I said, I don't want to send everyone off running for the hills, but if something did happen I wouldn't feel at all good having not passed it on.

More concerned about a rape allegation than a terror attack??

Anyway, I've just heard on the radio that they've just closed areas of The Mall/Strand/Travalgar Square....

A colleagues husband as in the Met and they are on high alert today.

Exactly, my Wife spoke to our friend (not just someone we bumped into at a party once, a true friend who is married to my Wife's best friend) who said the same thing.

[Edit] - Just to be clear, he's also a police officer based at Scotland Yard.

Not a thread for changing the title to something sarcastic IMO.

I think it's more a case of whistling past the graveyard to be honest mate. I am sure everyone is appreciative that you've drawn our attention to it. :)

I'm not sure what whistling past the graveyard means, but I just don't think that someone should have changed the title to something less serious that what it is.

Guilty :hiya: And it wasn't not meant to "be funny".

I presume you meant "it wasn't meant to be funny"?

If that's the case, what was it meant to be?

It came across as a way of "having a laugh" at someone who posted a thread about a credible terror threat today that turned out to be nothing more than an unattended suitcase, when in actual fact the suitcase incident is conincidence and there is still a high level in threat in London today.

um if you've got information about terrorist threat surely you shouldn't disclose it?

I didn't say I had information about a specific terrorist threat, justthat my Wife received a phone call (which could easily have been nonsense), that actually turned out to be very accurate.
