London in grip of normality

LONDON is today in the grip of normality, with millions having their breakfast then going to work.

As the sun rose on a slightly chilly but otherwise pleasant spring day, residents of the metropolis faced up to doing the things that they would ordinarily do.

Librarian Susan Traherne said: “I’m going to have a bowl of Jordan’s Country Crisp with the dried strawberry bits in it and a cup of tea, and then get on the busy tube train to my work.

“I might read a few pages of my book on the way, if I can be arsed.

“As ever it will be a long and tiring day, and the city can be frustrating but it’s really not too bad.”

24-year-old accounts assistant Wayne Hayes said: “After work I’m going to a bar where they just sell small batch gin and ironic retro crabsticks.

“You might find that annoying and I suppose it is a bit, but hey it’s a free country.”
