I passed that point this morning at about 7.30 and I was taking the wife to work crossing over Vauxhall bridge and the missus says "Can you see the
top of the building through all that mist, coz I can't, did you know that Sultan of Brunai bought the penthouse for £50 million?"
I tried to lean over but seeing as the position of the road we were in meant I couldn't get down far enough to see the top of the building anyways.
Besides I thought that cranes had to have lights on them to point them out to aircraft and why was the heli so low over the area anyway was one of my
So far had 2 phones calls asking if we're alright as people know we go through the area.
Plus the *Cough* secret MI6 building is there so the military probably want to make sure it wasn't another failed 9/11 type event I suppose.
Luckily as well, the area to the right of the crash on the BBC's imagery used to be a petrol station, but has been dismantled for about 2 years now,
so it was lucky is wasn't there anymore otherwise the situation may / could have been a lot worse.
