MPs stunned by London terror attacks

EAST Dunbartonshire MP Jo Swinson managed to travel back to Glasgow on Thursday to attend her sister’s wedding, despite the chaos on London’s transport network following the bombings

She said: “In the morning, I was able to travel into Westminster by overground train, and what struck me was how calm everyone remained.

“I was almost expecting people to panic because of the terrible things that had happened.

“However, everyone responded in a tremendous show of solidarity, and that has to be one of the few positives to come out of these awful events.

“At night, the whole public transport system had more or less ground to halt, but I needed to get to the airport as I was flying back home.

“I was the bridesmaid at my sister’s wedding on Saturday, so I had to get back, otherwise I would have stayed in London for the weekend.

“I did manage to get a lift to the airport and get a flight back to Glasgow, but I was severely delayed and had to cancel a surgery I had arranged for Kirkintilloch on Thursday.”
