@Jean-Luc.M: Hi Jean-Luc - the headquarters have moved to a new building between Waterloo and London Bridge train stations - about a 15-20min walk from here. This old HQ was the closest to deal with emergencies around the London Eye and the Big Ben/Pimlico areas - now these people will have to wait a little longer.
