An explosion has been heard in the vicinity of London’s Baker Street underground station, prompting worried Londoners to wonder if it had been a controlled police demolition or a bomb going off. The station had been evacuated earlier due to a suspicious vehicle.

‘Loud explosion’ after security alert, evacuation at London tube station

Not much to report just yet.

Baker Street?

In which case I would suspect Moriarty.

Seriously though: glad no one was hurt, I hope this was not what we all think it could be.

I'm not seeing it reported anywhere else.

Hopefully it turns out to be nothing.

Yeah, saw it on twitter and RT, didn't think it was worthy of a thread yet, all seems safe and evacuated, looking like a controlled explosion.
Wouldn't surprise me if it was just a forgotten holdall, it happens more often than real bombs in the UK, but usually just makes a snippet story on the bottom of a page outside of local newspapers and the like.

*Edit*
RT are reporting it was a 'suspicious abandoned vehicle' now.

Twitter is calling it a 'controlled' detonation of a suspicious vehicle.

Where'd you see that?

They should communicate that far and wide beforehand at least for a few months, eh?

So it turns out nothing then, good, it happens quite often, just makes the news more now due to current 'fear' levels.

Good call, I will give things more time in future. Everyone is in freak out mode, so there will be many more false alarms I am sure.

Nope, just sharp shooter reporting. Early bird catches the worm, gets the scoop and all that. Nothing to apologise about. I am glad I know about it.

RT update the headline so I updated the headline in the Op, and they added-



The station has since reopened, but the nature of the blast that numerous people reported on social media remains unclear.


Same Link - RT

Just read twitter or even just the RT twitter feed then. That's all that ever gets posted on ATS as breaking news these days. You'll get it quicker than on ATS that's for sure.
I often roll my eyes when people say 'good reporting' etc, but what for, just rushing to make threads about every dramatic sounding thing on twitter or RT?

Lots of people gonna lose their motors.

Haha, I thought that!
Parking outside a tube station in these times of 'fear & terror' is taking the piss a bit though, and just asking for your motor to be 'made safe' by security services lol.

Lol, I saw that on Twitter before the thread was posted as well, thought the same thing.
I'm a crap reporter though I wait to see if a story is actually going anywhere before starting a thread.
Seriously, ATS 'Breaking News' is a second hand place to find the stories so I guess those who say "Good find" or "Good reporting" probably only obtain their stories from ATS and no other media.
ATS is a better platform for discussion than social media though, so it has it's place in my digital communicative toolbox.
