Looks very exciting.
Rush hour
MI6 building just opposite,
The Palace not too far away.
arm of crane now dangling above the street
tube station evacuated
Lots of police sirens - always makes it sound important - and blue lights - ditto

(Incidentally at a major incident there should only be ONE blue flashing light, which indicates the command vehicle. One red one for Fire and so on.
As more 'senior' vehicles arrive the others should be turned off. But they never are.)

What is interesting is how rarely it happens. When was the last time ?
The Thames is not very wide and yet it is the route through the city, for obvious reasons.
There is a keep left (or right ! ) rule, but the amount of traffic is not inconsiderable, whereas the obstacles either side, are.
There are commercial helicopters, police ones, Sky news, BBC, private ones, all whizzing around on a twisty-turney track more difficult to negotiate than the latest computer game.
Add the main E-W descent path to Heathrow, and it becomes even more astonishing that something has not happened before.
But it will. Of that we can have no doubt.

PeterMac was listing the comments from the internet and twitter. It wasn't his personal comment.

Where I live a helicopter has been going over my house for over 15 years at 8.00 a.m. and 7.00 p.m. every day, I always know what time it is when I hear it going overhead, I don't have to look at a watch or clock, but I must say I don't remember it going over tonight at 7.00 p.m.

What a terrible tragedy for the pilot of the helicopter and the driver of the car that the helicopter crashed on to. Too horrible to think about.

Thanks - I thought it was a strange thing for him to say.

But how one would tell from Peter's post it was from internet/twitter comments I'm not sure?

Absolutely amazing the fatalities weren't higher considering the area. You are right too horrible to think about.

PeterMac's quotes always seem to be short and to the point, he doesn't go into too much detail.

I only knew what he was referring to as I'd been reading all the news reports this afternoon on the internet and the complaints regarding some of the Twitter/forum messages that had been posted.

My daughter commutes by bus down that road every workday and works nearby. He just missed the trainline and a passing train and the surrounding residential buildings no doubt well occupied so early in the morning. I hope the pilot can be credited for some control over where he eventually came to ground. I think amazing so few fatatilies though I suspect there are some horrific injuries with the hospitalised.

The papers are beginning to do it again.
Divine intervention for everyone who was late for work, but absolutely no mention of Divine intervention for those HE placed exactly where the debris was going to fall.

I just don't get it. Sorry.

Normal journalistic stuff.

The guys who would usually have been on the crane are so lucky still to be here but how the family of that poor man on the ground must wish that he had been running late that day.

As you say, normal unthinking stupid hurtful journalistic stuff.
What about the ones who were injured because they were ten seconds early ?
Why don't they just stick to the facts.
Accidents happen and people get hurt.
It is not miraculous that they do, nor miraculous when they don't.
It is just part of the random and chaotic universe in which we live.

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
