Stay safe everyone x


#3

Stay safe, folks.


#4

Oh ffs


#5

Was just around there, must’ve just left before this. Police describing it as a “customer incident” atm, very confusing.


#6

I hate this stage where you have no info. Called my dad as he would have been about there, was still in work though so all ok for him, was nervous as fuck while the phone was ringing though.


#7

Oxford St and Bond St stations shut atm


#8

And of course, I hope everyone is safe, my first post was a bit self-focused, sorry.


#9

Police advising anyone on Oxford Street to stay/go inside shops, which is concerning


#10

black friday fight gotten nasty? gunshots appear to be unsubstantiated


#11

Stay safe everyone


#12

Really?


#13

reports of shots fired, treating it as a terrorist incident

? i mean like knife nasty obviously, not just some shoving


#15

ah fuck


#16

“as it if were” a terrorist incident sounds slightly different to treating it as an actual terrorist incident


#17

yeah it’s an odd statement. hopeful that it’s something a lot less crap than it seems


#18

It is probably too early to confirm it as such.

Stay safe.


#19

My initial thoughts, but @mildmanneredjanitor is right it’s too early.

Hope it isn’t as bad as feared. Thoughts go out to anyone there, anyone nearby or anyone who knows someone in the area.

I think that was TFL’s wording by the looks of things.
