Islington

We set off from Munich after breakfast at around 9am local and arrived at Heathrow at about 10am local. We didn't know anything had happened until we arrived at the underground station at Heathrow where announcements said that there were no services in London as a result of a power failure. It soon became apparent that it was not just a power failure.
We queued for about 20 minutes for a taxi which took a while to take us through to Islington. Most of the way along a congested road from Heathrow to Victoria region we were passed every few minutes by a police or other emergency vehicle. Buckingham Palace, among others, has been cordoned off, there are police everywhere, supported by army.
Security at the Islington Hilton is such that there is no access to the hotel for taxis, even ones that have just cost 80 pounds, or even for guests unless they have photo ID with them.
