Today was one of those days when I was very thankful for the invention of the mobile phone!
My children both live and work in Exeter.
Within minutes of the news of some sort of explosion in the city, they each sent me a message and messaged each other too. I knew that they were fine and safe. I think they were more worried about me! Knowing how much time I spend in the city, that's understandable!!
To evacuate the centre of a city must be one massive task! But it sounds as if this was done superbly well.
At the moment there are too many rumours flying around to even make a comment on the whys and wherefores but let's hope that Exeter gets back to normality tomorrow!
In the meantime, I have appointed the above and below persons to keep watch over the city...until I get there!
