Could of been an earlier incident... or as with most things in the media, I find if you know anything at all about the story or event the media will get it wrong in some way. Especially when they are speculating about an ongoing event.
it was scary! I'd been to the Intrepid Fox, and was planning on getting the no. 10 bus home down Oxford Street. Fat chance of that. It turned up, but we went on an interesting detour around Regent St, and there was a very strong smell of smoke.
