The Flour Bomber

Today brought a millimetre of snow to London, which was brilliant, making everything beautiful, allowing transport to grind to a union-agreed halt, and meaning that everyone turned up at work late, stomping their feet and making “brrr” noises as they came in.

The day’s Metro brought an interesting update on the case of the failed Tube bombers. Splashed across a page were fascinating CCTV photos of one of the bombers escaping, shot from five different cameras.

Hmmn, I thought. So, when they say that the CCTV footage of the Stockwell shooting mysteriously vanished, that would require the same miraculous error to affect several different cameras, both on board the train and throughout the station. Goodness me, what are the chances of that happening?
