Police are reporting that "a number of incidence" have taken place on the London underground. At least one hospital in on emergency stand by and one eyewitness as reporting seeing a young man with a rucksack fleeing the scence after his rucksack exploded!

This is just happening as I type so I don't now how serious this is going to turn out. No reports of injuries yet so hopefully this was a failed attempt!

3 stations affected. Oval, Shepherds Bush, Warren Street. All sealed off. Smoke seen at Warren Street and Shepherds Bush.

I've heard the same weird eyewitness report of a backpack exploding and the man carrying it looking dismayed and running off (detonator went off, but explosives failed to go off?)

Haven't heard any eyewitness from the other 2 yet...

**UPDATE**

3 tube stations evacuated. Warren Street, Shepards Bush and The Oval. There is a cricket match taking place at the Oval today.

Just getting a report that of an incident on a Bus in Shepards Bush. This might just be part of the evacutations around the Shepards Bush area.

Nope, the cricket match is at Lord's not at the Oval. They've got a bit confused...


Latest reuters :- 1 nailbomb, 1 shooting

Oxford Circus also shut.

Yeah, I got that cricket match wrong.

Police are now saying that dumby bombs were used! Apparntley just detonators were used. At least one of the bombers seemed to be suprised when his "bomb" went off - or failed to. Perhaps they didn't construct them correctly, why would they use dumby bombs?

I don't know. Could be that they made the explosives incorrectly and didn't test them...

Also, could be that just one failed to go off but people are playing it safe... There are no eyewitness reports of anything more than smoke. But if there was a bomb it could take 30-40 minutes before those rescued passengers get overground again... (I hope the 3 detonator story is correct.)

"windows on bus in Hackney blown out" Apparently everyone got off the bus and the driver found a rucksack on the back seat?

Why would they use dumby bombs? This doesn't make sense. The bomb maker must have messed up.

There's no way these scumbags are getting away with this, the ones on the tube will definitely be on CCTV

Looks like we got lucky, it seems only the detonators went off. This could be a good opportunity to round some of these idiots up and hopefylly get some of the higher ups too.

The frequency of the attacks is worrying though, this could well indicate a campaign is underway rather than one off 'spectaculars' like New York and Madrid.

IF there is no loss of life, and the failed bombers are all rounded up and questioned (or tortured, I don't mind), then this could actually be a really positive step toward getting to the root of this cell and possibly others.

IF...

Eyewitness says "english guy" had the exploding rucksack on the tube? This could be a far-right group trying to stir things up!

Armed police have sealing off a hospital near Warren Street tube station. It's possible one of the injured terrorists is in the hospital (surely he can't be that stupid?).
