I travel from home into Euston Station in London each day and then on the Victoria underground line from Euston to Victoria. The Victoria line was one of the lines targeted in last Thursdays failed bomb attacks.
As I passed through Warren Street station this morning I caught a strong smell of cordite or a similar explosive. This was deeply, deeply scary. I immediately looked around to see where the smell was coming from and found myself looking for Asian men with rucksacks or bags. I couldn’t see any and the smell passed. I appeared to be the only person who smelt it but you can never tell what other commuters are thinking of course… Did I really smell it or did I imagine it?
The BBC has an interesting article on their site discussing the new reality of commuting and the fears of passengers which makes for very interesting reading.
