    At just gone six this morning, i felt my house and roof shake.. i looked out of the window to see if it had got windy and listened downstairs for burglars.. neither were happening.

    ..sky’s geoff meade was on the line very early, I only tuned in at 0620 as I wasnt aware of anything bad.. he lives in st albans and was woken and called the office. ..a news24 correspondent outside the foreign office in whitehall heard it.

    itv news aired a traffic type camera which it said was live barely a minute before sky had a live camera in vision. sky had telephone reports from producers and editors travelling – even julie etch called in saying it woke her up. news24 was very slow compared to sky – even insisting on showing half of their ‘reporters’ programme at 0630 before canning it to cover the rather large news story..

    all of the decent eyewitnesses called sky – they were well ahead of anyone else in reporting the wide scale of the noise – people calling in from kent to report in.

    …more later when i remember.

    this is how newstwentybore reported the story for half an hour, then they went to reporters – a prerecorded programme before cutting it off at 0645ish.. by that time sky had taken dozens of eyewitness calls..

    Who was on sunrise this morning and is it Juliette Foster and Martin Popplewell live now?

    I think Sky have the best live shot at the moment but just seen news 24 have a package on it.

    steve gaisford and anjali rao were presenting sunrise this morning. ..they handled it brilliantly, in my opinion – especially at the point where so many reports were coming in from around the country, sky news technical people said they heard it at sky news centre and the news@sky.com mailbox was fullup.. and they managed to keep it all together, bringing all the info together and working out first this was a very large news story …and bringing me the widest range of coverage of any news channel.. a dozen eyewitnesses were spoken to even before the beeb cut off ‘reporters’ ..and were still pondering ‘bangs in hemel hempstead’ …

    this beeb pic is good though.. scary.

    Do Sky really have to show hour upon hour of smoke

    It just makes boring tv and there are other things going on in the world

    Nothin else of the same news vale is going on in the world and it makes better viewing than the same packages on replay hour after hour like a normal Sunday and if sky didnt do it then they would lose viewers to news 24 and ITV

    live camera from central london, getting dark… nuclear winter anyone? black rain? why have we not heard from anyone in authority? On 7/7 Sir Ian Blair popped up during the early moments to tell people not to panic.. cobra was convened in less than an hour.. what is different here? ..is it because it’s not in london? can terrorists hit outside london then? ..or is it because it’s a sunday. and there’s no govt people available..? ..so, we’re susceptible to terrorists on a sunday then? brilliant.

    either way – I AM PANICKING BECAUSE I HAVENT BEEN TOLD NOT TO. I assume the govt wants me to panic as it hasnt told us it is in control – so it cant be.. so i must panic.

    it’s utterly scandalous to leave hundreds of thousands of people to guess at what might be the best thing to do in the event of a toxic cloud of death hanging over the house. HELP PEOPLE! GIVE THEM SOME ADVICE! Vulnerable people will die unncessarily in the next few hours if someone doesn’t take the lead and let people know what they should be doing. COME ON..

    Anything that impinges on the M25 stockade always takes top priority!

    Just suppose Hertford had been Hereford….item 6…no higher.
