The night. Friday, November 13th, a few minutes before 22:39. London.
I was impatiently waiting at the St. Pancras International for the last train of the day from Paris which had arrive at 22:39. I was looking around myself and was surprised about non expected amount of members of police and security staff. ...and some of them was armed... This is indeed not common to see armed police in the Great Britain. Sometimes I could see armed security or police staff at the airport but not at the train station. But it was international train – Eurostar. So maybe it was this reason. Or another else..?
I could see a light tense in faces of some waiting people. But I did not notice anything special. I had any idea that something wrong should happen. I hadn´t been watching or reading news that evening. I was in a little rush for preparing weekend´s programs for my friends from France. I have had no idea that whole world wide broadcasting was interrupted by breaking news and internet was flooded by actual information telling about several terrorist attacks in Paris ca. three hours ago.
