I live about a mile and half away from Vauxhall and walk past there a lot – I’ve taken images of this building and surrounding areas so I’m shocked that it wasn’t even worse for the time and place!

I heard about it around 10am but didn’t walk up there until after 2pm … I don’t like to get in the way – most of the roads were still closed but the station and buses were operating.

I’ve lived in London for years but I’ve always managed not to see anything terrible – for which I am very thankful for!!
