    There have been 7 in total.

    The time of the Woburn Place explosion on the Route 30 bus was at 9.45am (just after Euston Station and by UCH).
    OMG

    I can't make sense of the news

    It's all confusing...

    anyone know whether the bombs were mobile phone initiated or timers? They said that teh mobile phones were jammed to prevent explosions as a precaution.

    I am getting sick of this speculation it makes thing ten times harder for people and causes uneeded worry. Please only state facts and please back it up. If anybody is found to be lying they will be warned.

    As far as the official sources are concerned there has been 4 explosions, it would be on the news by now if there was seven. So please no more talk about 7 explosions until it has been officialy confirmed.

    woborn comes off Tavistock - it's probably refering to the earlier bus explosion outside BMA house.

    There have been 4 in total. There was confusion because people were coming out of the nearest tube station either side of a bomb explosion.

    I know this is so insignificant in comparison to the actual situation, but i'll ask it anyway. Do you reckon the Big Brother housemates will be told about it, because in such an awful situation as this they have a right to know, especially if any of their family or friends were caught up in the incident.
    you're ****ing joking, right?

    Woburn Place, Tavistock Square are both the same place...just people reporting from different ends.

    I can't currently find the post here about gatwick airport being closed, but gatwick's website says "Our UK airports Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Southampton, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen - remain open and all flights are currently operating normally.

    Passengers are advised to allow additional time for their journey to and from the airports. All underground services in London are currently suspended."


    Apparently the bus service from the airport (Gatwick express) is not operating.

    As to whether or not it's Al Qaeda, the Beeb have suggested that the tactics differ slightly from AQ's normal methods. The aim of the blasts seem to be to shut down London transport rather than to maximise death toll. Although that by no means rules out Al Qaeda entirely.

    Either way. It's hideous. I just can't believe that it's happened. It was inevitable, I guess, but that doesn't make it easier to take in. I just can't believe people can do this to one another. It makes me sick to be so close to where it's happening and be completely unable to help

    Tavistock square! That's right near Betham House (UCL law building) I'm pretty sure :eek:

    Sorry, I know it doesn't really affect me at the moment so I really shouldn't complain or anything, but still... next year i'll be sitting in the square looking at the spot where the bus exploded

    Some of the news sources are saying 7 over here. My mom told me that one of the news stations she was watching has footage of 6 of them from various other news agencies.

    Apparently:

    (Original post by The TImes
    An unknown al-Qaeda cell in Europe claimed responsibility for the attack in an internet claim that could not be verified, saying: "[B

    Britain is now burning with fear[/B]."
    I'm not scared - I'm ****ing angry.

    If the ***** think that this is going to do anything than make us hunt the little ***** harder they really are ****ing deranged!
