After the events of Saturday night I just wanted to quickly give everyone some advice on what they can do if they ever find themselves in an event where they need help and don't know how to go about getting it.
First of all, get yourself to safety. When you are able to do so, call 999. If you are unable to speak the operator will ask you to cough or make an audible sound. If you are unable to make a sound to let the operator know you need help, the call will go through to the Police Voice Response System. You will then hear a message asking you to press 55 if you need emergency services. This will let the police know there is an emergency and help is needed. If you do not press 55 they will not be notified.
Londoners are a bunch of tough cookies and this will not divide or conquer us. But it is always important to know what to do in case of emergency and how to protect yourself. Be safe and well my loves.
My thoughts are with all those affected on Saturday night.
