I posted this reportage earlier today, and then a short time later, read of the horrific events in St Petersburg. Thoughts with St Petersburg on this terrible day.
Anyone who was in London on July 7th, 2005 will know exactly what people in St Petersburg are experiencing, and not only. This, the first part of my two-part special reportage on the recent terrorist attack in London.
With blasts on the St Petersburg Metro now reported as having killed a number quoted by many sources as 10, with some 30-50 wounded – including children.

Along with you, I’m sure, I send my deepest condolences to St Petersburg. Many in London remember as yesterday the 2005 bombings on the tube system of our own city.
I’m fortunate to have been many times, and have many friends in the beautiful city of St Petersburg. Thoughts with everyone there at this terrible time.
