Second mail incendiary device

It would appear someone is upset at their speeding fines...
Two injured in 'mail explosion'
Two men have received minor injuries in a "small explosion" at a company in Wokingham, Berkshire.

Thames Valley Police were called to Oaklands Business Centre just after 0900 GMT after reports that an item of mail had ignited.

The building was evacuated and a cordon has been set up around the site.

Police said they were aware of a similar incident in central London on Monday but it was too soon to speculate on any possible connection.

South Central Ambulance Trust said two men, aged in their 30s, had been treated for minor injuries and were not being taken to hospital.

Fourteen people were evacuated from the building.

On Monday, a woman received minor injuries in another "small" explosion at an office building at the Capita building in Victoria Street, Victoria, in central London.

And if you dig around on google maps you come up with this business in the business park:

Two people have been injured after an "item of mail" exploded at the offices of a company in Wokingham, Berkshire, just a day after a letter bomb exploded at an office in London.

Thames Valley police said that the incident took place at the Oaklands Business Centre and the injuries sustained by the two people were minor.

The building was evacuated and a cordon was placed around it.

Police said they were aware of the incident in London but said it was "too soon" to speculate on a connection.

Sky sources said that the latest company targeted deals with the enforcement of speeding fines.

The London device was sent to the London HQ of congestion charge firm Capita.


Both companies to have received letter bombs are suppliers to Transport for London. Both are involved in the congestion charge as well.

I think I'll get someone else to open the mail from now on!
