Armed Siege

…So… there is an armed siege currently underway in my patch. I've been involved in it and once more I'm not sure what would be the right thing to report about it. Lets just say that I was there and it went from a nice easy 'assault' job into a rapid dash for cover…
Something a bit different on a Sunday afternoon. I wonder how the local and national news will cover it. Even for Newham it's a bit out of the usual.

I've got to give the armed police their due – they turned up very quickly once the call went out.

  1. Someone must have been very angry at France losing the World Cup! On a serious note there's nothing about it on the national news yet, up my end of the country (Newcastle) a family were all shot in their house this afternoon. Crazy is the only word I can think of.

  2. Well now some ten hours after your post, and I can't find anything on the Beeb web site. I'm keeping the conspiracy theories at bay by acknowledging that I'm probably not looking for the right thing…

  3. That's for sure. If it's a white-skinned young man that'd be fine, but a brown-skinned young man? That'd just be racist.Me however; I'm just hoping they don't gun down an innocent person of any age, sex, race or creed.
