It’s up in the air at the moment but the rumour is that a cop’s been murdered and at least one other person has died. There are also reports that the AR guys have shot someone, probably the perpetrator.
This is bad gooseberry fool, if you can see the red and green sign on the sky news pic, my wife usually works about 200m to the right of that sign.
EDIT: I put this in the politics thread as it may be terrorism related but I don’t know if this belongs in another thread?

EDIT: can the last few posts please be merged with Albear’s thread?
Seems almost certain it's some sort of terrorist attack. The Reading stabbing wasn't described as a terrorist attack in the initial early chaos, took a few hours, but not really much else this could be.
The pictures I’ve seen and the information that’s coming out suggest that the stabbings were in a hotel used for asylum seekers. My worry now is that it *was* a terrorist attack - a white supremacist. I truly hope not.
I need to stress to all the people citing Reading that we have no idea what’s happened here yet. Reserve judgement for now because I have a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach that there’s more to come here.
Avoiding speculation entirely is probably for the best
Follow the advice to stay safe if you're near the area and otherwise wait for the more full and established news reports. My frustration is in seeing the poor reporting of the Reading incident so recently and this following the same trajectory
