AT around 5pm last night (Thursday) trains started bringing people back out of London.
Newburytoday met some of West Berkshire's residents as they left the train at Newbury station, after a treacherous journey out of London.
A Hungerford lady, who did not want to be named, said the only topic of conversation on the trains was the terrorist attacks that brought the capital to a standstill yesterday.
It is now known that “at least 50″ people were killed, and many are still missing, after three blasts went off on the Underground and another one on the number 30 bus.
Newbury resident, Angelina Lukhurst, said she had made a snap decision to get off the Underground and get a taxi, as she was running late, which meant she missed the chaos which unfolded below London's streets.
After speaking to newburytoday, she made a dash for the station car park where her husband and children were eagerly awaiting her return.
Tasha Ryder, and her mother Tanya, had planned a day out shopping in Oxford Street on Thursday.
By the afternoon, they told us, the shops were closed and everyone was on the streets trying to get taxis home.
It took them an hour to get a taxi from Oxford Street back to Paddington station.
