    From pictures it looks like a gas explosion, no reports of counter terrorism or armed police being deployed and it doesn’t seem to fit the typical terrorist target

    It looks like it happened at a convenience store.

    My thoughts were gas explosion as a Londis shop is hardly a terrorist target #1.

    No one ever said it was terror related, but is obviously a major incident and hopefully no one has been hurt or killed.

    Looking like an accidental explosion.

    At least for now that's what it's looking like to me, could be wrong.

    No. I don't tend to use Twitter when events like this occur and all sorts of unverified theories are being spouted out.

    It seems that the entire shop has been oblitirated. Hopefully no one was living on the second floor of the corner shop.

    Its sad that nowadays people see explosion on the news they immediately think its a terrorist attack.

    The only tweet I saw that suggested that it was a bomb was one posted by Nick Griffin.

    You clearly haven't scrolled down far enough. I stopped reading after I stumbled on one posting the racial demo breakdown of Leicester and sarcastically asking what the cause of the explosion could be. Also that's just one thread I linked there are more comments in other threads. Feel free to look for them but I'm just disgusted by these people but I am not surprised.

    This isn't twitter though, so why make posts aimed at twitter on here?

    And if they are hurt, I hope they get the compensation, love and support deserved. No Grenfell Tower ****.

    I never said it was aimed at twitter so I have no idea where you got that from. And as I didn't quote anybody in this thread you can also assume that I didn't direct it anybody here. Why are you guys making this about me? (rhetorical question please don't respond or quote me). I can see where this is going and I want no part in it.

    Yeah but who really gives a fu*k about what Nick Griffin says anyway.

    But that being said its a reasonable assumption to make giving the times we live in.
