A quick update for anyone who has just seen the news from London.
Firstly, I am not in Camden. I’m staying with Bruce and Holly in Queens Park.
Second, the location of the fire is the market area north of the canal, not the market area across the road from the Clutes’. I’ve just tried calling them and got an engaged signal, which is unsurprising. I suspect they are besieged by calls from worried friends right now. I’ve also checked Ellen’s Livejournal and she has a report from last night so it looks like all is as well as it can be under the circumstances.
Meanwhile I am worrying about the market traders. My guess is that a lot of them will have lost all of their stock.
