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.

OMG!!!!! :eek:

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

I don't think it is though personally, we will see who clames it.

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.

My thoughts are with those involved :(

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.

As many news agencies say: Lots of groups always come forwards and claim responsibility.

I'm just thinking what a downer for Tony Blair right after a small happy moment for securing 2012 olympics, major downer.

Still haven't heard from my friend in south Ealing. I know that's not near where the blasts were but I'm not sure where he works now or how he gets there.
