    I'm listening to it on the internet right now on BBC.

    Since all bombers died, 1 died in Aldgate. 1 men arrested in West Yorkshire.

    The police, intelligence services are doing an amazing job the way they are carrying it out but I must admit it's freaking me out slightly! I live so close to Leeds and it's really quite scary to think they were so near! :eek: The BNP often scaremonger here (in Bradford) and after they've used the pics of the bus bomb for propaganda I'm worried they'll do it again, especially since it's so close!

    I was watching sky news earlier and they seemed to be under the impression that all 4 bombers died in the explosions...I think they'd traced 3 of them back to West Yorkshire and thought the other joined them on the train to Kings Cross in Luton. At the mo they're being careful not to say "suicide bomber" apparently because I don't think they can be certain just yet. They seem to know exactly what they're doing though...

    It's a bit chilling! :eek:

    Was the Parliament scare a false alarm does anyone know?

    This incident is really horrible. I mean what do they really want? Attention, or fear? I hate terrorists, they are just destroying other lives.

    Oh, so they were explosives! :eek: They said that they were going to carry out controlled explosions on the car. That's a bit scary!

    The explosion in Leeds was used to gain access into the house (all the houses round there have metal security doors). Apparently the people the evacuated earlier have been put up in temporary housing for the night. (according to my friend whose caught up in it)

    Its all a bit worrying though, I lived 5 minutes from Hyde Park Road when I was in Leeds!! :eek:

    Hmm....if it was the terrorist's car then maybe that's why there were explosives in it? Maybe they were ones that were left behind that they didn't take with them to London or something? Unless they had some kind of timer on them to blow the car up? :confused: I don't really understand explosives! lol!

    Ditzy I didn't realise the doors were metal hehe that explains a lot! Thanks the whole incident isn't too far from me....a fair distance I suppose but I often get the bus to Leeds to go shopping etc....my gran lives pretty close to Burley though which is where one of the big raids is! I'm going to see her tomorrow as well! Hopefully Burley isn't on the bus route! It'll all be a bit scary if it is! :eek:

    I'm glad they seem to be finding who did it at least, although it's a bit close to home for my liking! :eek:

    It is thought that most of the London bombers were from Leeds. How sad it must be for you to know that terrorist cells are in your town. And all this police activity most be quite frightening.
