by | 27th, April 2012

A HUMAN bomb – a man strapped up with gasoline cylinders – has invaded the offices at Advantage, a company which offers HGV courses, on London’s Tottenham Court Road.

According to Abby Baafi, 27, the head of training and operations, the man stormed into the offices. She says that she told the suspect she was three months pregnant to escape.

Stories are that the man has chucked computers and other objects from the fifth floor of Shropshire House.

The police are enacting the Three C:  Confirm. Coordinate. Converse.

Plan A: Bore the man to give himself up.

Of failing , shoot him. Armed police are in the area. Rumours are the man – named Michael – has taken hostages.
