Tube Chaos In London

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

here but it's behind the times. The radio's reported two explosions and three massive power surges. There are injured at both explosion sites. Some critical.

It looks like it might not be a terrorist attack though? Explosions caused by power surges? Image

It's 'Electrical' to the news media but a member of staff who's cousin works in the London Fire Brigade has heard it's terrorist ...

Me obviously. In Farringdon/Hatton Garden.

Black Dhalia or Black Shuck?

Fatalities on the buses have been confirmed. We're hearing bangs all over the place in the distance. Plus the sirens wailing. London is basically shutting down.

All mobile networks are down. Whether that's overload or precautionary I don't know. All train services into London suspended. Everyone in London who travels in from outside is stranded.

Blow me and call me Charlie. :eek:

I turned on to watch the Wright Stuff and found all this going on.

They say not to speculate, but it's obviously a terrorist attack.

This is awful - it just unfolds bigger and bigger. Obviously it looks like a terrorist attack, and one even more sophisticated than the Madrid attacks (though thankfully less deadly, at least as far as we know so far). The timing re: G8 makes it looks particularly political, but it's not obvious how much we can read into this yet.

It's apparently to prevent detonation of further devices if they're being set off with mobiles (as they were in Madrid).

I naturally share the sentiment of "Bloody Hell :eek:"

Not good :|

Edit: Not wanting to raise alarm, but we've not heard reports of huge numbers of deaths. Small explosives, few casualities...dirty bomb anyone? :?

unlikely, I'd think (hope) - more likely to be small conventional explosive devices designed to cause fear and panic and casualties in enclosed spaces. And the Met are now saying "many casualties" according to the BBC.

Ok, I take back the few. :|

Edit:
Someone on another forum wrote: There's reports on BBCNews that decontamination tents have been spotted. I hope that's just a precaution and not a sign of anything more sinister.
