    Does anyone know of any Edugeek members working in London: Do you know that they are OK?

    Edit: I used to work in Southwark. I must say I am glad that I do not still work there but I feel for those who do.
    Our very dear @Domino lives and works in London! and the ever wonderful @Soulfish also works in Central London but escapes to the south coast on nights. I am sure we have many more than those two but they are the instant 2!

    ITV just tweeted the following

    Lots asking about Birmingham Children's Hospital rumours - just spoken to them they've had "no trouble - all is safe & quiet"

    @ITVCentral

    It appears the hospital is okay for now.

    That is good news.

    Sister's mate is in Lavender Hill and has looters dividing up their haul in her back garden. Police have just turned up.

    I thought it was seeing a lot of chopper activity.

    It had to happen sooner or later, any excuse for some looting.

    I work in London and up until a couple of weeks ago, lived in London. East Ham in fact, where a lot of trouble kicked off last night.
    My 2 boys were getting texts and pictures sent by their friends that are still there all yesterday evening. None of these friends are the mindless morons causing trouble I hasten to add. I'm working quite near Oxford Circus where apparently there was some trouble yesterday. But thanks for your concern for us London Edugeekers, especially DaveP, it's nice to be thought of.
