Shit. Source?

Soubriquet Fri 15-Sep-17 08:49:48

What?! Noooooo please not again

Scribblegirl Fri 15-Sep-17 08:50:09

Parsons Green according to twitter

HerRoyalFattyness Fri 15-Sep-17 08:50:23

oh god.

GingerAndTheBiscuits Fri 15-Sep-17 08:50:37

Yes, posting without a source is v bad form considering many MN will have friends and family commuting this morning

ChardonnaysPrettySister Fri 15-Sep-17 08:50:45

Bucket set alight.

Scribblegirl Fri 15-Sep-17 08:51:08

Which is weird - it's above ground and relatively far out, wouldn't have thought it's a natural target

BBC news link

Not much said at the moment.

Appears it was a bag that exploded and has caused burns - doesn't look v suspicious to me (but then what do I know?!)

SonicBoomBoom Fri 15-Sep-17 08:53:08

Shit.

Soubriquet Fri 15-Sep-17 08:53:27

Jeez people don't mince their words on twitter do they? Lots of speculation on there and some quite graphic

ChardonnaysPrettySister Fri 15-Sep-17 08:53:28

How does a bag explode?

What the fuck did they carry in it?

It doesn't look like anyone has been hurt. I think your thread title is alarmist and misleading. If posters have kids or partners currently heading out on the tube you could really have shit them up.

ChardonnaysPrettySister Fri 15-Sep-17 08:55:18

Paint thinner? That's flammable.

Why is that allowed on the tube?

ChardonnaysPrettySister Fri 15-Sep-17 08:56:00

It's all over the radio and news stations and twitter Morris. Of course people are talking.

SandraDeesLeatherPants Fri 15-Sep-17 08:56:45

It was an exploding bucket. They've obviously shut the district line down. No one hurt.

bookwormsforever Fri 15-Sep-17 08:58:17

Sandra - Twitter says people have facial burns.
