  • Bomb scare

    Thankfully I got back to work before everyone was told to get out of the main part of the city centre, otherwise my Easter bunny gift would still be in my clutches!!


    They've chucked people out of the shops etc because they have found a WW2 bomb at the building site near the Belgrade theatre. The sirens are just going now from the emergency vehicles!

    It's all excitement here I can tell you!

      Gosh that so reminds me of when Manchester city centre was hit. On the Monday, we got the bus into a devastated town centre and our office was taped up at the front entrance but we got in through the back way - so we were literally just at the edge of the No Go Zone

      Hope everythings exciting but OK!

            They've evacuated the council house which I can see from my prep room window!! And the bus station is closed and that's only a stones throw away... must be a huge nuclear bomb or something for it to affect the entire city centre!!!



            Think I'd better head home before I get evacuated!

                  Bomb!!!

                  Poor you! Just read about your bomb scare! It happened to me and my mum once in a Tesco store. Poor mum was really frightened but it all turned out to be a hoax. Everyone had to leave their trolleys and go out to the car park. At least it gave us all something to talk about!! So glad it wasn't real though! Keep smiling! Sue. x

                    The bomb squad waited til 3am to detonate it in a controlled explosion. Irony is they had to cancel the performance of One Night in November at the theatre - it's about the WW2 blitz in Coventry!

                    I got home fine - luckily live at a different end of town, my mum had to go on a diversion and got caught up in heaps of traffic. Alls open now except one road which they are worrying will collapse....

                    I think all the old folk living nearby were getting into the blitz spirit by singing!

                      Phew...

                      ...Glad you're all safe.

                      Makes you wonder just how many others there are undiscovered, deep under Coventry, given the total hammering Coventry got in the war.

                      I have heard older people say with hindsight that the war was one of the best periods in their lives, because of the community spirit. My grandad was killed in Egypt in 1942 and my nan was left to bring up four children by herself, the youngest was 6 weeks old. She said often that she wouldn't have coped without the help of friends and neighbours.

                        What a pain. My son goes to school in Coventry slap bang in the middle of the exclusion zone. Took me an hour (usually 15 minutes) to get close enough to dump the car and walk thhere to get him. Then took another hour to get out of the city and home again. Thank goodness I had a groupp of friends coming round to share a few drinks last night - felt like I earned it!!
