They've now announced two people dead; one a police officer 

Staff at Immediate Media GW magazine and their families may well live in or travel through the area affected by all this.  Hope all are ok.

Thank you BM ((hugs)) ... so am I 

Some poor families haven't been so lucky 

Growing Veg year on year

The growing carrots from the tops thing works as an amusement for children in a saucer of water on the kitchen windowsill - but it's not a successful way to grow carrots in the garden. 

Fruit bushes of course, will continue to fruit year after year if looked after - so you might like to consider growing some fruit?

He is fine, thank you MU - I was hoping he would call - he's always been good in the past  about letting me know if he's in the vicinity of problems.  We've agreed that I don't call him in these circumstances as if something is kicking off it's best just to let him concentrate on what he has to do.  

I am of course very relieved, but some families have suffered awful tragedy.  My thoughts are with them and with the police and emergency services who risk their lives trying to keep us safe.

Depending on where he was shot - but I've just seen film of what looked like the attacker on a stretcher with an abdominal wound with a dressing applied.  You could see his bare abdomen.

Son is in central London - he said there's all sorts of rumours on the various radio stations (not BBC ones of course).

Oh absolutely Obelixx - there will have been others involved in the planning etc.  And the description of the attacker kept saying that he was 'sturdily built' ... could he be wearing explosives?

Just heard from son - I knew he was working in central London today - he drove over Westminster Bridge a few minutes before the incident - he's ok thank goodness, but the van they was using is stuck within the cordon - he has had to travel by tube to pick up his car and will be using that to transport the equipment ....  I'm so glad he phoned ...... phew!

But some people have suffered 'catastrophic injuries' and a woman has died

My pleasure SGL.  

Obelixx - it seems there was just the one attacker - he was shot by the police.  Some of the people hit by the car (which it seems was driven by the same person) appear to be a party of French schoolchildren
