    Just watching Sky News on tv - multiple cas being treated outside the station, and witnesses describing a hole in the side of one train. One witness also suggesting an additional explosion incident on a bus in Russell Square. Police spokemen now referring to 'incidents' on the Underground.
     
  7. National Grid reporting on Sky that there were no anomalies in their systems that might have caused a power surge. Police implementing cordons and evacuating system.

    I took a days' annual leave today to do some DIY. Phew.

    V!
     
  8. Incidents seems to be the correct word. Interesting to see how this turns out. G8 starts today remember!

    This will be our Madrid then..... Or something similar. I can't understand why anyone thinks that multiple explosions on the tube network can be power surges. Can anyone name an time or place that a tube/car/house has received explosions from power surges?

    Re nat grid I think LU has its own power system seperate from the grid.
     
  11. Buses exploding now, I reckon it's bombs
     
  12. Exactly, I'm glad someone agees with me, have just had a big row with the whole of the office trying to say the self same thing.

    According to Sky, police now reporting 'quite a large number of casualties'.
     
  14. They're also evacuating a lot of the Banks around here now
     
  15. Whats the bloody point.

    I hope the bombers burn in whatever hell their beliefs allow
