    Power surge, apparently. Not a bomb.

    Sky tv news are saying it could be a power surge due to 2 trains colliding, maybe underground. Fucking hell, if it's two tube trains then there will be hundreds, if not thousands of deaths. :(

    Kings cross evacuated now as well. Fuck, I hope it's not a terrorist attack. Central Line seems to have stopped, the trains run past our house.

    I thought it was just a power cut. All the lights started going out as I walking through Bank station.
    IT was all a bit scary to be honest. Now I am at work and there are ambulances hurtling down the road, one after the other. :(

    westminster was being evacuated as my jubilee line tube went through it - no one was let off, and it went straight through to waterloo.

    although this may have just been a precaution before they knew the cause of the explosion obviously...

    :( hope it's not an attack or anything serious :(

    Cloo U R dOin me a friTen

    Some of my workmates heard it - all reports say accident so far and at Aldgate, not Liverpool Street.

    Typical bloody media panicking people by making it sound like a terrorist incident in a major station. :rolleyes:

    Nasty for people involved though, I'm sure.
     
  23. Gavin Bl

    Gavin Bl terrible awful baaad

    we're round the corner from Aldgate East, seems to be a power cable - walking wounded, lots of soot on them apparently.

    I have this terrible gut feeling that this could be a series of terrorist attacks due to the fact that we got the Olympics. I hope to god that I am wrong, but it just seems a coincidence that it's happening today of all days.

    edited - they've got a live link at kings x with pictures, people with 'blackened faces' being evacuated from the station, might not be an explosion

    entire tube network being vacuated

    'incidents' at old st and russel square
