Black Friday taken literally in the centre of London

EACH day the world seems to become a little weirder and on the evening of Friday November 25 it was London’s turn to witness a strange occurrence when Soho was hit by a Black Friday virus and the electricity was cut off for several hours which resulted in the closure of shops and the cancellation of a number of West End shows.

Not prepared to be hampered by any muggle nonsense, the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child performance went ahead just a little later than originally planned although ironically The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and Aladdin were unable to see the light and their theatres stayed dark.

It appears that 2,300 properties were affected by the black out which lasted for nearly four hours and was caused by a fault on an underground electricity cable which thankfully did not power the tube network otherwise the chaos could have been immeasurable
