O2 Wireless, Depeche Mode, 25/06/06

Of course, I'd forgotten to check if my batteries were still fully charged by the time I got to Hyde Park...and it turned out they weren't. Two cameras I had with me, and both refused service on the day. It's alright though: my companions all took photos, and I'm sure they'll put them up soon if they haven't already (see bogwitch's journal for an impression of the line-up).

But just before the end though, in the middle of DM's encore, something made me take out my camera and try it one more time...and this is the result, before the screen turned red and gave the "Batteries Depleted...Camera Shutting Down"-warning.

That was a bit of luck.

And was the time I left, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to get the car due the fire behind King Cross (thus explains those police cars). Luckily I got there before they widened the exclusion zone!

The fire turned out to be on one of my company's contruction sites...

Yes, I heard about the fire (though they called it a signal fire on the intercom) when I got back to King's Cross in order to take the Thameslink to Gatwick. Luckily that was the only service that wasn't affected (or I would have had to hike back up to Euston)!

I heard about the fire, but then they said immediately afterwards that Thameslink wasn't affected I thought phew!

So how much cheaper was the train? We got our train in the end for £14.90! Only 50p more than the coach!

You saved me 4 quid! I did have a bit of a wait though as the Brighton train was delayed by 28 minutes, but it was fine -- I got to the airport around 4-ish -- then had to wait around till half 8 as my plane was delayed by a full 2 hours as well!

Exactly.

Although that 2 hour wait? Meant an extra pair of shoes was purchased on duty free...
