I blog when I go abroad, and occasionally when I do stuff in the UK too. There's a nicer interface over here.

Fire engine called to Primark in Kingston

Fire engine called to Primark in Kingston today. I didn't manage to get a photo but there was a huge scrum of people outside who had, I assume, been evacuated. It was open again by the time I went past it again 45 minutes or so later, before I saw that I was half expecting it to appear in the local rag this week:
Discount retailer Primark today suffered a setback in their flagship Kingston-upon-Thames store as fire ripped through the building. A spokesman said that all merchandise in the shop was destroyed and accordingly an insurance claim for 58 quid had already been placed.
