True but maybe that is to keep those who want to know in the know (so to speak), or some of us work in areas where are sources aren't neccessarily media based and want to keep other members informed.

No offence - but if you don't want to read such comments just yet, don't read the thread?

The Oval - opening day at Lord's. These ladybits have NO respect.
Lawyer yes, cricket fan - no.

Lords is closer to Shep Bush than Oval.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner on Sky just now. referred to

"four explosions or attempts at explosions"

casualty numbers (those relating to explosions) "very low"

"bombs" (he used that word) seem to have been much smaller than before

still investigating to find out just what has happened

stay where you are and go about normal busness.

What I meant, like said before on the original bombings the other week by many. Speculations and rumours, out of respect should not be posted. And when posting to add the source. This way people will not go mad at things that may not be true. Seeing as I do not live in UK, this is a way to keep up with news.

Nature of the beast is that with direct media feeds, means that there is a lot of reports vs Conjecture. Surely up to the reader to decide what to accept.

Incidently, according to BBC UCH is still cordoned off and has been entered by armed police.

Before I leave this means, this is the latest from City police, same source as before:

21 July 2005 14:45 BST

Suspected terrorist activity

We can confirm that emergency services personnel have responded to reports of incidents at 4 sites across the capital. They are Oval, Shepherds Bush, Warren Street and Hackney Road, E2.

As a precaution officers have been deployed at Warren Street London Underground station in full protective equipment in order to carry out an examination of the scene. We have carried out initial examination at Oval and early indications show no trace of chemical agents.

At this stage we have no reported casualties. We ask people to remain at work or home at this stage and await further information.

The following tube lines are suspended: Victoria, Northern,
Hammersmith and City, Bakerloo.
