I move in the shadows between ruined buildings, until I find streets jammed with people. London is evacuating. Six million people leaving on the move!

I join a group heading for Newhaven on the south coast. As far as we can tell the Martians are focusing on the north, so we might make it. But there are so many people, and nobody keeping order. I see some single women in a carriage being robbed.

Should I risk my life and help the women? Or accept that this is happening everywhere, and keep moving? Or do something else?
