The news streams seem to infer he has taken an HGV training office hostage due to failing his HGV Exam twice.

just saw there here:  http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/04/27/tottenham-court-road-evacuated-bomb-threat_n_1458437.html

Sounds like it happened in the building shared with the Huff Post / AOL.  Its about 100 yards or so up the road from our office.

...real life in your face drama. It's what's for dinner.

I remember that happening with you mate.

This was a touch less dramatic. He threw some paperwork out of the building. I also understand he lit up a Capstan full strength, which led to the snipers being deployed on local rooftops.

Ultimately he was simply arrested though!
