Search is back, forgot to post that the other day. It unusually failed of its own accord (as opposed to previously where I'd just not started it back up after a server restart).
Obviously we weren't there, but the special programme shown when the news channel closed down corroborates the account given in that post - Andrew Harvey and a lady whose name I don't know broke the news at 9:18am and the programme then cuts to a clip from 10:12am showing Steve Scott welcoming viewers on ITV1, just as described.
The Twitter thread seems to have gone quiet since Shaun pointed out that they may be misremembering it with the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes, which was later that month. I know this place isn't necessarily the beacon of truth but it's a shame the original posts were dismissed so readily.
