Shocking Footage: Martian Machine at Tower Bridge

Above: Shocking eyewitness footage from central London

Late last night, Britain was in shock after a giant Martian Fighting Machine was seen firing its Heat Ray on Tower Bridge.

Eyewitness accounts have been circulating in the press and online for days following the arrival of a giant cylinder which crash landed in Surrey last Tuesday.

Meanwhile Professor Ogilvy, head of Horsell Common Royal Observatory, is now known to have perished by a deadly ray of Heat fired by the Martians.

Ogilvy previously claimed there was “no danger” and said  “the chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one”.

Local residents witnessing the attack described hearing deafening howls which roared like thunder.

One witness said it sounded like “ULLA!” and others have even given terrifying accounts of being seized and drawn inside the savage machines.

Mytess from Hertford said “we were scared, we jumped out of our skins!” (via TripAdvisor). Ruth said “the most terrifying experience known to man” (via, while Nicola D said “I screamed when I was captured in the Martian Machine, but escaped before my blood was sucked dry." (via TripAdvisor).

New Government advice has been issued from today, it states to gather your loved ones and get to 56 Leadenhall Street in the City of London as soon as possible. It is only here that you can escape from the Martian invasion. Spaces are limited and must be pre-booked via the official website

The thousands already at Leadenhall Street have begun to share joyful messages online celebrating their survival:

"We were survivors!! Words cannot adequately describe how much we enjoyed this. I do hope to be back" Famallama via TripAdvisor

The actors were spot on, so enthusiastic. The boat part was fantastic. The dining room experience was the most scary, but good fun. The VR goggles made things transform, they were brilliant.

The food was delicious... and the drinks went down well too! The attention to detail in the whole venue added lots of atmosphere to the experience.

— Michelle C, via Tripadvisor

Didn't know what to expect, but was blown away by the whole day. It's not just great VR, but a whole experience which comes to life thanks to the interaction by the amazing and enthusiastic actors and the willingness of the group to be involved. Highly recommended.

Inventive and fun. Great combination of VR and real life actors - all of which were fabulous especially Peggy and the Arrillary man. Cocktails were delicious and. The front of house were very helpful. Just Brilliant.

The dining room and boat scenes were the best for me and the links between each scene were so good with great actors and improvisation.
