With the world constantly changing around us it is good to reflect on the events and moments in time. It is those moments that help tell the story of our past and shape the road we travel upon in our future. Let us reflect on those moments briefly, shall we?

Hundreds of City of London workers had to leave their offices following a major gas leak in London Wall.

Reports of gas escaping at Salisbury House in Finsbury Circus had alerted engineers to address the situation immediately.
