There's a lot of sirens around Hemel Hempstead tonight. I live between the hospital and the fire station, so I hear them all, but there seems to be an awful lot now. I dare say as I live on a major cut through into the town from the residential areas, I will know pretty soon if something does kick off. Looking at the kids in the park now though, they seem very calm and more inclined to walk the dogs and kick a ball about than run amok.
It was very tense at work today and there have been a lot of rumours of trouble kicking off in the centre, but nothing seems to have happened, which is good because I needed toilet roll! I did pass a police cordon earlier, though I suspect that was due to an accident rather than disorder.
I wonder if PJ Harvey is now regretting calling her new album 'Let England Shake'...
