The big trek home, originally uploaded by Adam Tinworth.

I set out for home at around 6.30pm, fully expecting the streets to be thronged with people walking home. I was wrong.

The staggered departure from London, with many people heading home from 4pm onwards seemed to have take the pressure off, and the streets were busy without being packed. As I approached London Bridge station, it was getting positively quiet.

Congratulations to Transport For London for getting the buses and trains running again so quickly.
