My thoughts exactly.

Any info, I cant find anything on BBC news. I do worry, as all of my family live in Birmingham, and I know for a fact that some of them travel through Snow Hill from work

It was just on Central news. They didn't have much info as the news came in whilst they were on air.

They did say that either no trains or some trains would now not be running.

British transport police have confirmed they are dealing with an incident.

200 metre courdon around the area and apparently it's the midland metro platform (hope that makes sense i never go there).

Also bomb disposal experts are at the scene.

Christ. I'll keep an eye out for that.

On BBC news 24 now. A man has been arrested carrying suitcases, and this may have had a connection with the London bombinghs

They said that the details are still sketchy however. Trains have been suspended and buses have been diverted
