    Thumbs down Explosions in London, UK

    Anyone watching the news will have probably heard about it.

    There were originally 2 train explosions being blamed on power surges and with few injuries.

    However now it seems Scotland Yard have confirmed 3 bus explosions. And there is chaos in London.

    All Trains on the underground have been shut down and all trains/transport into the centre has also been stopped.

    Will try and update with anything new but the sky news/bbc websites are being hammered.

    CNN thinks it may be the IRA.....

    This shocked me when I heard about it just before 11 o'clock. I don't think it's fair to place blame yet as it's all too early to say anything.

    Jesus, I've just spoken to my Dad - he's in Holborn, London and heard the bus explode. Had he been late, it would have been the bus he would have taken.

    6 trains, 1 bus. 2 confirmed deaths and lots of injured. TV down here has just mentioned that Al Qaeda has apparently claimed responsibility.

    By the way, what does BTW stand for?

    It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.
