Default Post fight travel...

My original plan for getting home from the O2 has been scuppered so I was wondering if anybody knew the public transport situation. I remember FW muttering something about getting the tube to run late but I've heard precious little on that score since. Anybody know what is going to be runningat 3am on Saturday and what isn't? Now, I'm sure FW would never tell a porky but The TFL website doesn't mention any late running tubes......

You have to pre-book a bus or boat..I've gone for the boat
£12 each and from there I can get the night bus home. Hopefully well sozzled and happy after a good nights action.

Have now pre booked parking at the venue - just hope we don't have to wait forever to exit the car parks with everyone leaving the same time after the main event!

Don't envy some getting home - the O2 is pretty much in the middle of nowhere and can be a difficult venue to get home from at the best of times, let alone when the tubes aren't running.
