Parliament attack in London

Awful for all involved :)
Yeah, my brother and his family live in London, and my mum flew in today to see them. As far as I can tell from themselves, twitter & the BBC, both incidents are over. I'll likely hear more later from my family in London.

Not really, nobody minds much about shooting crows. Fox hunting and other blood sports are banned though.
