On a android so a bit iffy getting links posted.

Just heard that a explosion is being reported on the district line London Underground at Parsons Green station by the looks of it actually on the train.

If i can link reports I will..

No reports as to cause thus far.

Reports of injuries,

Stay safe guys....

Update, looks like a white drum or canister used for paint in a Lidl brand shopping bag caused the explosion but infornation is still very vague.

Update: sky news is report either a lower level explosive device or something that did not detonate as intended. A eye witness reports are saying wires are coming from the bucket.. I really hope this was a terrible accident but with the reports thus far it does look to be something more sinister, hard to cut through the MSM hype to get a clear picture of what had happened.

Pictures are showing passenger walking along the track to safety and report of bad burns with one eye witness saying a women was burnt from head to toe!!!..

Update Reports of second device found at parsons green station and Bomb squad are on scene deactivating IED device. .. Reports coming in now 10:33 am

Interesting that someone would use that if they were trying to hurt people, or it could be a distraction??

Right now anything is possible but using a plastic bucket is not going to cause that much damage.

Seems people were injured and burned




Terrified commuters have "run for their lives" after an explosion on a London Underground train tonight.

People fled in panic after a "fireball" reportedly left several passengers with facial burns on the packed train in Parsons Green, west London.

One witness told the BBC there was a "bang" and then a "wall of flames", which spread through the packed carriage. The doors opened at Parsons Green and the commuters, many of them with scorched faces and hair, ran off screaming.

Armed Police, paramedics and firefighters were all said to be at the west London station within five minutes of the explosion.

a 10 pack of sparlers would do more damage.

It depends on what was in the bucket. It looks like a 15L bucket.

Sky news reporting most (if not all) of the injurys came from the panic after as people ran fearing for there lives

Could have been someone went to lidl, bought some paint and one of those exploding vapes and then forgot to take it with them.

Lidl is good but the products are shoddy at best.

You can see wires coming out of the can.

The bucket is strangely intact for a bomb going off. Was it an underestimate? Did they think it would shatter and the explosion would go out instead of up? Those buckets are tough! Or was it intentionally to try not kill people for other reasons. Like a false flag. I'm trying to keep an eye out for cctv footage or pictures.

There's another picture of the bomb and there's clearly wires coming out of it.

They could be wires but if so that is one crap bomb if it cannot even destroy the bag for life it is in?

Unless of course Lidl make there bags from the same stuff they make Muslim passports out of, those things always survive the explosion.....

Do we know that this was the actual cause of the panic or if it was indeed a bomb or is this merley speculation?

If so it should be a suspected bomb and not a bomb, it is a bit early to tell from a single photo unless addititinal info is out there?

The bucket/container clearly has no paint in it. The same containers are used for many different things especially in the food industry.

I believe that it was meant to be a weak noise maker, rush hour and a loud noise makes for panic or it is a distraction for something else??

Good point.

Lots of things come in tubs like that but they tend to be the kind of thing that would splatter everywhere like paint or mayonaise.

What makes you think that?

Seems a bit complex for a noise and lots of evidence left over? something a lot smaller could make a big bang in a confined area like a firework or small homemade explosive device?

I think the bucket was too tough and the explosion blew the top off. Perhaps The bucket wasn't sealed so the explosion didn't pop the sides, throwing shrapnel outwardly.

The explosion that did happen could have been worse, if the bucket was sealed tight. Wouldn't take much boom to throw nails everywhere.

Big makes it look scarier and a firework would look like a prank?
