London siege at Amex office...
My friend Sean works at the Amex exchange office in London's Haymarket just round the corner from our offices in Mayfair. It turns out it's under siege and has been since 10am this morning! Yikes! I'd better not call him as it might cause problems! "Trained negotiators are holding face-to-face talks with a gunman who is holding a woman hostage at an office in central London." So it's not Sean then. Phew. But poor woman. I hope she gets out OK.

UPDATE: The woman's been released.
