This is crazy. Didn't expect anything like this in my home town.

So many rumours are flying around that it's hard to find anything solid. But by all accounts, surrounding buildings have been evacuated after an armed man has taken hostages in the laboratory / factory.

This plant contains many chemicals and it's unclear if this man is an ex-employee or someone completely different.

Some rumours are saying there could even be a second person, and yet more rumours suggest that one of them may have a bomb.

The local college has been evacuated, all students are taking free bus's home. The roads are chaos at the top end of that road.


The Daily mail also mentions that the man may be carrying a bomb.

What annoys me, is this is possibly a very significant event, yet because it's up north, it doesn't get the attention it possibly deserves.

The police are now negotiating with the man.

I can't believe nobody is bothered about this.

They're too worried about being sent to a FEMA camp



Here's another article, doesn't seem to be much info at the moment.

From what i know, there's a hell of a lot of cyanide in there.

IF something does happen, then i'm as good as dead.

Amen, Brother Lizard. This is one of my pet grievances about this country: if it doesn't happen in the South East or London specifically, it doesn't actually happen - apparently - or that it's just not that important.

If was happening in the South East, there would be rolling updates on all channels.

Anyway, I hope this ends without anyone getting shot or blown-up.

Nothing on TV. Maybe rumours for all we know. Jade comes first in the news Mr Lizard.

Would be nice if the British media focused on this news story - seems a device has to go off in order for the media to pay attention


Currently researching the company.

Could be a disgruntled employee?

Definately not a rumour. The police have just arrested a 28 year old man. The building still remains on high alert and is being searched by bomb squads.

... and yes you're right about frigging Jade.

It's not a rumour.

But, frustratingly, the British media thinks some closet paedophilia's music tour is more important than domestic terrorism. Oh, and some decadent women profiting off cancer too.

This could be the first eco-terrorism event in the UK, but we'll never know due to the redundant and ineffective media.

Absolutely right infinite.

It's sickening isn't it? Thanks for the replies, i'll keep you all updated. I would offer to have a look myself, but the roads are all sectioned off and it's getting dark now.

My money's on ALF and the animal rights extremist nutjobs.

I really wouldn't be surprised if the factory was a medical manufacturing facility or something like that.

Our company labs in Cambridge have been subject to 2 arson attacks, and our MD was given a threat against his life (at gunpoint) in the last 5 years...

The worst thing is that the police don't consider a death threat enough to grant a cat-5 special exemption firearms license... even though the Northern Irish get them for being in a "trouble hotspot" (even after the peace process).

I think the company itself actually deals with minerals and gold and such, i think the reason it contains chemicals is due to having to filter certain elements.

Hold on i'll find a link to the site and maybe we can find out more.

Hmm I stand corrected.

Disgruntled employee perhaps? Seems unlikely to go all the way to make a bomb...

Unlikely target for Islamic terrorists as well.

Maybe local crime boss related?

Speaking of things blowing up.

This is pretty weird. 3 building in Montana just blew all to hell.
Leveled three buildings, looks like a hell of an explosion.

ELF (Earth Liberation Front)

Most likely this organisation - if a disgruntled employee is ruled out.

Skynews - Arrested male of Central African origin. Explosives strapped to his back.

didnt really notice this
supprisngly (from South east
)

so the company recycles old things that contain gold in them?
CPUs and such, if thats the case they produce couple grand worth of GOLD
daily so it could be a gold heist gone wrong.

I believe i unintentionally placed an error in my reportings, i don't think the man was armed with a gun.

I think this was down to local rumour and for that i apoligise, i dislike misinformation as much as the next person.

I'm gonna change the title also.
