Whoops, wrong thread. Radio is now saying police are calling this a "major incident".
 
2005-07-07 04:58:32 AM  
Entire tube system now closed apparently
 
2005-07-07 04:59:35 AM  
Ruh-roh. If this isn't an accident do you think this is related to the G-8 conference?
 
2005-07-07 04:59:52 AM  
"All of the (united?) services have been mobilized"

"Power Surge seems the most likely culprit"
 
2005-07-07 05:01:08 AM  
Yeah, all the tube is completely shut down. I was going to hop on at King's Cross instead of walking in to werk as usual, but they'd started closing all of the stations by that stage.
 
2005-07-07 05:01:56 AM  
(correction) "All emergancy services have been mobilized"
 
2005-07-07 05:02:20 AM  
Radio is now saying power surges are the culprit, at a number of stations.
 
2005-07-07 05:02:22 AM  
BBC has a video stream somewhere, im trying to find it.
 
2005-07-07 05:04:27 AM

2005-07-07 05:06:15 AM  
Oh man, its times like this when I wish there was an all night news site where I can get breaking info. saaaay...that would be a great idea!
 
2005-07-07 05:07:44 AM  
Sky and BBC 24 are showing people being treated for injuries on the streets now - glad I'm not working in London today, it's gonna be hell.

leperboy69: News isn't saying anything about a bus being blown up.


From Sky News:

According to reports a bus has exploded in central London just minutes after a number of blasts on London's Underground.

"I saw lots of people running up a road and then saw the top of a bus destroyed," one eyewitness told Sky News.

I'll call shenanigans until I hear it on another news service - BBC isn't saying shiat about that yet.
 
2005-07-07 05:16:39 AM

2005-07-07 05:17:26 AM  
I've been watching the BBC live stream for the past 15 minutes, still managing to stay on it...

Wrong end of the UK.
 
2005-07-07 05:19:18 AM  
A lot of BBC's pages are farked.
 
2005-07-07 05:19:38 AM

2005-07-07 05:20:02 AM  
BBC just reported there was a video of a bus exploding
 
2005-07-07 05:20:33 AM  
BBC is now saying that an explosion ripped through a bus as it approached Russell Square. A policeman and several eyewitnesses have apparently confirmed this, but everything is still quite confused.

I take back my shenanigans...

binnster: Wrong end of the UK.

I know. But still, I'd imagine that everything up north would be locked up pretty tight. You got to figure that if some assholes wanted to do anything, why not go down to one of the biggest/most famous cities in the world?

/Wild baseless speculation

Bus blew up in russell square

2005-07-07 05:21:48 AM

2005-07-07 05:24:32 AM

Don't like your chances at the moment...

Scotland Yard just said multiple explosions across london.
 
2005-07-07 05:25:08 AM  
Terrorists, it is official. Time for the U.S. Stations to break in.
 
2005-07-07 05:25:20 AM  
I didn't get them at Tesco's OK - Probably - worst case you'll get a bus from Reading.
 
2005-07-07 05:25:21 AM  
The Bus explosion is differnt than the Underground explosion's
 
2005-07-07 05:26:16 AM  
Faux News is replaying yesterday's Neil Cavuto show, MSNBC is covering the weather.

CNN's saying 7 explosions - 6 on the Tube, one on this bus.

/looks like most of London picked the wrong day to stop sniffing glue
 
2005-07-07 05:26:26 AM  
(CNN) Total of 7 explosions according to Scotland Yard. 6 in the Underground, 1 Double-Decker Bus.

2005-07-07 05:26:53 AM  
Bus "clearly blown up by bomb", apparently. "Top deck is completely destroyed, there are blood stains on the front of the BMA building."

Reports now of explosions on 3 buses in central London.
