We’ve already reported that a BT phone exchange at Paddington seems to have been attacked by two-fifths of The Planeteers yesterday (unfortunately not Ma-Ti). As well as affecting phone and internet services in North and West London (and beyond), here at Londonist Towers NW1 branch we’ve noticed another knock-on effect: in and around Marylebone station most cashpoints are down, and many retailers are unable to accept card payments. So if you’re in the habit of imitating Her Maj and don’t usually carry cash, you might want to reconsider. If your local area is likewise afflicted, let us know in the comments.
