Now defused, the bomb is safely on its way to Kent, thanks to the amazing men of the Army (Royal Logistics Corps) bomb disposal unit who risk their lives to keep us all safe. Today at Morning Prayer in St James's we prayed for them.
Police, council workers, and the Red Cross have all rallied round to help, and Simon Hughes has commented: 'I have been reminded of how close to each other the residents of our community are during the last day and a half. In the face of disruption and genuine concern for some, I am proud to call Bermondsey home.'
