A13

Part of 'Under the Tower' trilogy

Winter twilight on the A13 and the dawn traffic moves slowly into London. An illuminated roadside display flashes the latest FTSE index to the residents of the high rise council flats in Glenkerry Towers. Through the plate glass walls of the Financial Times building, giant rolls of pink newsprint are lying amongst the printing machines. Ahead, the dark superstructure of the Canary Wharf complex looms over the western horizon. It is blacked out, save for the pulsing strobe of the air navigation lights, making it look like a ship adrift in the ocean. (WR)
