Hi Hula.

Reports of incidents in London. Possible explosion on tube and on a bus. Only 1 reported casualty so far. Tube network closed down. Tony about to make an announcement. London Met sending out email alerts to London offices advising people to stay put and do not use public transport.

mini-bombs (like nail bombs but only the detonators went off) at warren street tube, oval tube and shepard's bush tube and on a no 26 bus in Hackney/bethnal green area.
So far only 1 injury reported (warren street)
UCH sealed off with armed police presence, looking for a suspect with wires in his shirt.
Another suspect arrested near Downing street.

All tubes stopped, and people in central london are requested to stay where they are.

All tubes stopped?

Hulababy Thu 21-Jul-05 15:43:20

Thanks for the summaries.

Tony ......Blair
Not v informative though. Lets continue as if nothing has happened etc.

Easy Thu 21-Jul-05 15:46:25

I said he has nothing to contribute.

Opportunist spin if you ask me.

oliveoil Thu 21-Jul-05 15:46:54

God he's a twat. Bet he looks dead concerned as well. When did he last get a tube/bus? (says olive who never does but ykwim)

northerner Thu 21-Jul-05 15:47:58

Sorry, I know it's in bad taste, but can't help sniggering at guy who 'looked dismayed' after his rucksack exploded. Couldn't they have used another word other than dismayed?

spacedonkey Thu 21-Jul-05 15:48:38

Have to admit my sister and I have been sniggering about that too

MrsDoolittle Thu 21-Jul-05 15:49:07

I know northerner, Easy and I have been chuckling about it too

HappyDaddy Thu 21-Jul-05 15:49:33

Maybe his favourite book was in the rucksack? Come on then, cheer me up.

dillydally Thu 21-Jul-05 15:50:42

I just hope they catch one of them and bring them to whatever justice they deserve
I would also express my admiration for the police dealing with these tw@ts - not something I would have though of saying too much in the past.

mummy23 Thu 21-Jul-05 15:51:12

it was probably harry potter

ScummyMummy Thu 21-Jul-05 15:51:38

I've been sniggering loads at that. Damn.. I think I maybe can't get out of going to work. Due there at 5pm. Grrr! Was hoping to wriggle out of it.

Tinker Thu 21-Jul-05 15:52:58

Say you're too dismayed to come in.

HappyDaddy Thu 21-Jul-05 15:54:21

Hmmm very funny. Sorry, am I the only one who has someone affected by this? Do I actually exist on this board or do you only notice me when I upset you all?

Sorry, I'm a bit shaken and upset. I don't mean to offend anyone.

Klara Thu 21-Jul-05 15:55:11

WHY DID THESE BOMBS NOT GO OFF - WAS IT ON PURPOSE? Why are the police going into tube stations in chemical suits? Were this lot planning to spread something nasty IYSWIM??

God I hope not
