There has been a LOT of very strange activity in London over the last few days and this morning. There has obviously been a lot on the news recently
about us stepping up out 'preparedeness' levels for possible attacks.
I work in the City (Bank area), and today there have been a lot of peculiar things that I don't have an explanation for: Firstly, the police presence
has really been stepped up in town. Not only that, but a great deal of them are armed which it not usual for the UK. Secondly, there are a large
number of both marked and non-marked police vehicles around, many of which are vans, each of which able to carry around 20 people. I have seen around
10 marked and 15 unmarked vans, which I think are the kind used to remove people from an area rather than deliver them to it.
There has also been a lot of helicopter activity. All of them have been marked choppers (not black ones here I'm afraid!), but at one point I was
looking at 6 in the sky in one glance. The 4 chinooks usually based in Moorgate all left together this morning at about 08.00, all heading south west
out of town.
There is an 'odd' feeling today in London, and I'm finding it very hard to put my finger on what is causing it. People seem to be on edge.
Anyone else noticed this or have any ideas about it?
