18 Phrases That Every Londoner Dreads To Hear During December

Just try to stay calm – it’s Christmas after all…

There are certain phrases that are stop-you-in-your-tracks-terrifying for any Londoner to hear at the best of times (we’re talking ‘…London Bridge station is closed due to a fire hazard’ sort of terrifying).
