Thank you
I saw police tape and a fire engine when I came out the station about 30mins ago and wondered what was going on.

I was kicked off a 185 by Wood Vale and had to walk into FH at 3pm. It didn't help there's also a set of temporary lights by Esso as well.

There is sand on the road from St Dunstan's College to Thomas Lane in Catford. Loads of traffic cones. Only route 75 buses are running. The police will only let buses come down Catford hill towards Catford.
