A further tweet just in.

Seems events in Hartlepool could have been a strange suicide. Power station isn't evacuated apparently possibly rumours spilling onto news

Seems there is a lot of confusion and speculation in the Hartlepool area.

There was a similar hazmat situation along a highway a few months ago near my hometown. Although there was no explosion, police discovered a mobile meth lab in a car they pulled over for speeding. They evacuated a large area and the highway was closed down for hours while hazmat took care of the situation. Several police officers who were first on scene had to be decontaminated and were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

This could be the case here too, only the mobile meth lab became unstable and exploded. It would also make perfect sense for them to evacuate the area surrounding the guy's home since he probably had chemicals stored there as well.

What I find strange is that this isn't in the MSM, since doom, gloom and scaremongering is what they are there to do.

It suggests to me it isn't a 'false flag', whatever is going on, and also that it's something they want to keep quiet.

Here is a link to the Hartlepool Mail

It's one of the newspaper titles that I work for so I will see what I can find out.

At risk of stoking up more fire where it may not exist, interestingly yesterday my house mate came home telling me a guy from work was saying something big was going to happen this week. Took it as a pinch of salt as you normally would but he was insistent it was going to be bigger than 9/11; and he said that it would happen this week because there is a training exercise going on involving biological, nuclear and trains.

He has not given me his source.

Essentially, it's good to remain neutral at the moment - but i've found it quite a co-incidence that we were told something yesterday, and a similar situation could occur in Hartlepool.

The nuclear power station had a leak in April 2011, and is to be decommissioned in 7 years time.

There is rumoured to be some chemicals involved, and I would guess it's just routine to decontaminate the people involved as a pre-caution. But you never know, other people are talking about them going back to the hospital and it now being closed.

Oh well, time for a tea.

It's less than 20 minutes. You'd be lucky if it took you 5. I walk my dog on the beach 100 yrds from that road. It takes me less than 15 to get there from the other side of town. It's not that big a place

Just to add to what's been said by others.

I live in Hartlepool. I've also just been to an appointment at the hospital.

The bomb disposal experts from Catterick have advised the police not to enter the guys flat. Therefore they have found no plans for anything. Yet. It sounds like they are not going to be doing much in the short term as they have advised residents that they will not be allowed home tonight.

The hospital looks like they are ready just in case. It looks like they've got a decontamination tent set up outside the ambulance entry. Nothing is actually going on there.

The power station hasn't been evacuated.

Evacuations after car blast death

Two cordons have been set up in Hartlepool and bomb disposal crews have been called in after a man's body was found in a car that exploded. The 58-year-old man, from Hartlepool, who has not been identified, was found in the early hours in Old Cemetery Road area of the town. Two police officers and three ambulance crew underwent chemical decontamination at the scene. Cleveland police said the incident was not terror-related.

Thats all they have on the bbc interactive servise so far. There will no doubt be a report on look north soon hopefully a bit more in depth

Someone walk up to the power plant with a rucksack with a few wires hanging out.

See how you get on, if the police shoot you dead we'll know they're on high alert and not messing about.

If they wrestle you to the ground, beat the crap out of you and cart you off, then it's business as usual.

In the article in the Hartlepool newspaper referenced in an earlier post, it explains that the 'chemical decontamination procedure' was washing with soap and water. The term 'chemical decontamination' makes it sound much worse than it actually appears to be.

"Never let a good crisis go to waste"
They can be seen to be doing something, in a tough, decisive action kind of way, and they can let the public get used to seeing armed police/soldiers in the streets. Kill 2 birds with one stone

I would think a reactor chamber is a lot tougher than a Nissan Micra

Well now....that's straightforward and to the point

posted on May, 18 2011 @ 12:15 PM
Just two things....
1. Anything on the 6 o'clock news anybody?
2. Is it possible that this was a straight forward suicide by a bomb...(yeah right, like anybody who thinks about killing themselves using a bomb...would be a first!) but the emergency services have turned it into a 'major incident', just for 'practice'?

Just thinking......filling time till we get more news...maybe....maybe not....

Sounds to me like a meth lab.
They would do the same thing to decontaminate police and firefighters.
I'm hoping that's the case anyways.Meth labs have seriously dangerous chemicals, and are highly explosive.

posted on May, 18 2011 @ 12:32 PM
The man was probably transporting dangerous chemicals for a meth lab, and like an idiot, was probably smoking which caused dangerous gases to ignite.

That would explain the HAZMAT crews for a "non-terrorist" car explosion on a country road.

Why are people saying there is nothing on the news when its on the BBC website ?

Evacuations - BBC news link

Something is obviously going on and they dont want the rest of us to know about it...typical !!

And, no, nothing on MSM. Just politics as per usual.

Good afternoon to all the 'monkey hangers' from Hartlepool at ATS.
I think personally this is probably some guy thats running a amphetamins lab from his flat..a few chemicals have mixed accidentaly in the car and 'KABOOM'. Just another waste of taxpayers money and more scare mongering for the daily papers.
