Why, I ask myself, when we all (including me) remark oon the interminable sirens around the E&C roundabout, and this must have been a festival of sirens, did I sleep through this event which was going on a stone's throw from my terrace? Hope no one got hurt. Was it arson? Fires in derelict buildings often are.
I saw it as a reflection in the London College of Communications and dutifully called the fire brigade. Couldn't see the fire directly, but could see flames rising past the top of the flats behind MCH. Katia and I were thinking of knocking on your door so that we could get a better view, but thought better of it.
I did hear the sirens and the helicopter at 1am, but thought nothing of it since there was a time when the late sunday night helicopter had it's usual appearance...and the sirens are not unusual either!
We had bendy buses & regular buses down Falmouth & Trinity Street following the diversion due to the fire. I felt for the bendy bus driver trying to reverse down Trinity St with a bus load of passengers.
