Went through this morning and there was a rider down at the Broadway crossroads. Was just being loaded onto a trolley for the very short trip to SGH I would imagine. Looked to be breathing and talking. GWS that rider.
RIP commute...

    I would say I passed it just before you. It looks as if a black Golf (I think) turned right to go up Garratt Lane, coming down the A24. A girl in the Golf, possibly the driver was in tears.

    There were a lot of people around him talking to him etc.

    I hope he is ok and has a speedy recovery.

    Saw a black car too. It was all taped off by the police when I got there and looks like they had been there for a little while. At least the trip to the hospital would be short! :)

    Not a good day for Tooting, with the fire down the road.

    I don't know, Tooting being on fire can only improve it.

    Apparently a pretty bad construction site fire; building was near completion.

    The road was still partly closed this evening and they were already putting scaffold up, presumably to make safe and then start demolition.
