BBC London News website now carries the full story, and it was on the 2pm BBC Radio 4 News.

Haha, my friend works for the MPS and told me that the call sign for that is "Teapot1" - makes me smile... reminds me of Thomas the Tank Engine for some reason.

The tea van was there when I went out at about 3pm when I went out and gone on my way in about 4.30 and I thought that it was a sign that they were nearly finished but obviously they just went to re-stock. I was accosted by a reporter in the shop and saw the TV crews talking to some idiots that probably have nothing intellegent to say so I'm looking forward to watching the 6 o'clock news.

Elsinore Road was closed between Vancouver & Stanstead.
I walked up Kilmorie and was stopped at Stanstead. The police said there had been a shooting. I saw an officer with a handgun. There seemed to be one car stopped in the middle of Elsinore Road.

Hope it all clears up by tomorrow morning as thats a walk to school route for Kilmorie. Nasty stuff. Silly bloke if he thought he could wave a large blade at police and nothing would happen.
