Discussion in 'war on terror' started by energy release, Jul 7, 2005.
There will be a 3pm news conference involving all the agencies involved in todays operations
But how much did they know - di they know there had been a bomb - and what could/should they have said? Should they have told people not to get on buses - in which case there would have been a higher concentration of people round the tube station, and what if there had been a bomb planted there? I'm not sure if there is a right or wrong thing to say.
Louis, thanks for that. Have now heard from said relative (seems to be a bit of a delay receiving texts..) and she's fine. As I knew she would be but you know how the panic sets in...
Theyve just announced on the radio its still closed . The policewoman i spoke to definitely said they were just reopnening it about 1.25.
R5 still announcing that Brighton is shut - as are Portsmouth and Poole.
bus hit was no 30 going from hackney to marble arch
makes for chilling reading. makes you very angry as well
I was pissed off with this too. I couldn't get on the train at Wembley Park and the staff told us to get a bus to the city. What they should have done is told people not to travel unless absolutely necessary. It was only because I received a call from my mum that I knew the full extent of what was happening and decided to go home.
Does anyone know if it is okay to walk through central london and through the city, or is it all cornered off?
bbc are reporting a bus blast at woburn place, is that a new one?
CNN are saying the bus that blew up is the No. 30 from Hackney to Marble Arch
BBC has a dedicate page: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/in_depth/uk/2005/london_explosions/default.stm
Yeah, that's what I was wondering. I'm bored as fuck & was thinking of heading into victoria later...
People are advised to stay at home or at work.
I guess when people are due to return home from work other announcements will be made.
Loads of people walking along Oxford St, just very few vehicles is all.
Can't talk for the whole place, but top end of Old Broad Street /houndditch cordoned off, police manning the fence. Probably be able to walk around most of it, just not near any of the stations (crime scenes)
i need to get home
We have to stay in the building .. Just been told 45 are dead
As is the ticker at the top of the BBC News front page. When was this?
I haven't seen that anywhere on the 'net (although I can certainly believe the figure).
BBC saying 1000 injured (inc walking wounded)
Official report here...www.sky.com
people walking down a tube tunnel to escape
To echo what Liberty said, SKy say there are 40 fatalities and that 23 died at King Cross
im listening to american radio on the internet and i gather that sources in america have given the figure of 40 dead, but their correspondent in london cant confirm it officialy.
controlled explosion it happen on the toob
Just about getting to the end of this thread...
Take care all in the capital...
