Discussion in 'war on terror' started by energy release, Jul 7, 2005.

    Yeah that's probably why the BBC aren't reporting it yet, as it's from an "unofficial but reliable" source as Sky news says (Sky are reporting 45 dead).

    Sky report that the telephone unit has been taken away by the police from the phonebox by the bombed bus

    Earlier multiple explosion reports because they happened between stations.

    Likewise, the bus was near Russel/Tavistock, now confirmed as only one bus at Woburn.

    Does anyone work near Victoria mainline Station? Mr S is walking from Baker Street to Victoria to try and get on a mainline train. I told him that I think overland trains are still running albeit with delays..

    Central London is quiet but seems safe enough - I'm just off Oxford Street... Most people are just going about their business, it seems oddly subdued though...

    I might have to walk home later ... 10 miles!! Oh well.. I'm not moaning. I'm sure there will be others doing the same.. The Dunkirk spirit and all that ... The worst thing we can do is give whoever did this the satisfaction that it may have disrupted our lives. Sneaky cowards.

    I would say that Victoria is probably on high alert... What with Scotland yard and most of the civil service being based there.

    fuck, that is truly horrible- if it's true :(
    i'd trust the BBC more, as a reliable source- i wouldn't believe uncritically everything Sky reports, so stick with the uk media and see what can be confirmed

    Does anyone know about the regions. I've tried to Access BBC Manchester & Liverpool pages & there down. I'd heard rumblings at work about something happening in Manchester. I don't want to panic anyone. But do any Urbanites know?

    BBC ticker reported earlier the tube system will be shut for the remainder of the day, although I guess there's no reason they couldn't change their minds about that later in the day.

    just talked to a mate, she walked from here (dalston) to elephant and castle and there were buses running to brixton - she lives in tooting but got it anyway...

    This is the first actual confirmation of a controlled explosion in SW7 that I've seen.

    There are a lot of houses like that in the area, but it looks like one of those very near the tube station. One or two of them are embassies or consulates.

    There have been an unusually high number of police and ambulances going up Princess Parkway towards Manchester city centre. I expect it's just a precaution though.
     
  29. I could not take the tube after what has happened. I'm quite freaked out.
