Can I encourage you actually to make sure that TfL does some positive publicity work? I think traders fear that if TfL is successful in warning people that the Tube is closed people will therefore stay away from Brixton and not do their shopping in Brixton. A lot of livelihoods are dependent on this, so I think the positive publicity about Brixton still being open for business is the least that TfL can do on top of the transport support you have mentioned there.

It is certainly my intention we get that page in The Metro, and perhaps we will get others. Perhaps we can try to get the TV cameras down for the regional news programmes to show the area is still open.
