Sad news out of London this morning as a terrorist attack has been carried out on Westminster Bridge and the Palace of Westminster. Oddly enough I woke up last night and read a couple of chapters of Ben Judah’s raw, no holds barred book, “This is London” at about the same time as the attack occurred. “This is London” examines the rapid demographic changes within London of the last decade.
A vehicle has run down bridge pedestrians at the exact spot where I spent a good hour capturing images last November. An injured woman has been pulled from the Thames alive. God be thanked! Several dead and others have suffered catastrophic injuries. Thoughts and prayers go out to all.
Ironically, the lastest Bond film “Spectre” ends with a scene of total chaos on Westminster Bridge. Real life emulating fiction??
One policeman stabbed and the intruder shot dead at Westminster. Hard to score this anything but a victory for the terrorists. Glad I got my images back then, won’t be going anywhere near there soon.
