Anglia (East) Look East
I simply cannot fathom the editorial decisions made at the BBC. For the BBC News Channel to be showing 'World News Today' at 9pm with an assortment of coverage is not appropriate for a UK audience.

For heaven's sake - when situations like this happen - split at 9pm. News Channel from wherever do their thing with sole focus on the Breaking News... World - stick with Ross and his touchscreen or in tonight's instance Lewis Vaughn Jones....

Yes it winds me up. Apologies.

Your not the only one, this world focus on our domestic affairs on our UK based News Channel is really annoying

Just throws fuel to the fire as to if there is a need for two channels. The cost cutting doesn’t work when situations like these happen.

I switched to CNN at 9, BBC was just unbearable to watch.

Meridian (North) South Today
I first found out about the attack after getting off a train at 2.20 (I was at London Bridge tube at 2pm unaware of the incident above ground)


I'm working in that area at the moment. I received a text at 14:21 from a colleague saying he'd heard there was an incident on London Bridge. My normal route home is to enter the tube network at Bank Station. At 15:30 I opted to go home, I deliberately kept away from Bank, and went to Liverpool St instead , and changed underground lines at Bank. The station PA was saying that the Monument exits at the station were closed owing to an incident in the area, other than that it was a normal commute

Really is time the project was dropped as the failure it is, especially now spectrum is having to be sacrificed for 5G.

It's a scandal that the local TV muxes have the same level of protection as the three national PSBs.

The whole thing is just a trojan horse scam to create a pseudo national COM mux to carry national so called supporting services
