London Siege Man 'Was Looking For Me'
A manager at a lorry training company has said that she may have been the target of the man at the centre of the Tottenham Court Road siege.
Abby Baafi, 27, is head of training and operations at Advantage.
In a video recorded by Stephen Hull, executive editor of news website Huffington Post, Ms Baafi said a man entered her office.
"I recognised him because he was one of our previous customers but he is not quite stable - mentally stable," she said.
"He turned up, strapped up with gas cylinders, and threatened to blow up the office.
"He said he doesn't care about his life.
"He doesn't care about anything, he is going to blow up everybody.
"He was specifically looking for me but obviously I said 'my name's not Abby', and I'm three months pregnant and he let me go."
Ms Baafi said the man had failed a truck-training course and wanted his money back.
A man was arrested by police just after 3pm and was led away from the building on Tottenham Court Road.
