Parsons Green Attack: Many Injured by Explosion on London Tube

Looks like a failed attempt at another bomb on a london tube train this morning. The media are stating it was an explosion however apparantly it was more of a fireball/flash which indicates a failed bomb. Neither is good of course but I am glad if it was a bomb that it didnt detonate like it was supposed to otherwise we would be looking at much worse.

An explosion on a London Tube train that sparked panic among passengers is being treated as a terrorist incident, Scotland Yard has said.

Commuters fled the District Line train after the explosion, which happened at Parsons Green Station.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing some people with facial burns and others with injuries caused by the stampede in the wake of the incident, which happened at around 8.20am on Friday.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command are investigating after the incident.

Re: Parsons Green Attack: Many Injured by Explosion on London Tube

18 people have been injured and gone to hospital, according to reports. None are thought to be in a serious or life-threatening condition, the London Ambulance Service said.

It's not clear how man of those were hurt by the explosion, and how many by the stampede that followed.


Here's a report from the Press Association's Hayden Smith on how the incident will be investigated:

Details about the Parsons Green blast are still emerging, but Scotland Yard had declared a "terrorist incident" within two hours of the first emergency calls.

Investigators will be scouring CCTV and taking statements from dozens of witnesses as they attempt to piece together the lead-up to the explosion.

Pictures circulating on social media appeared to show wires protruding from a bucket inside a plastic carrier bag, but officers have so far said it is "too early" to confirm the cause of the fire.

If there is a device, it will be forensically assessed after being made safe, while police will be urgently trying to establish whether someone attempted to detonate it, and whether they were present at the scene.

The scenes of panic evoked memories of the July 7 atrocities in 2005, when suicide bombers killed 52 people in a series of co-ordinated attacks across the transport network.

Two weeks later, a group of men attempted to set off rucksack devices but the bombs failed to go off.

The emergency at Parsons Green will spark another huge counter-terrorism probe as security services confront an unprecedented threat.

Four attacks - at Westminster, Manchester, London Bridge and Finsbury Park - have hit Britain already this year.

Authorities have foiled 19 plots since the middle of 2013 - including six since the Westminster atrocity in March.

The incident comes a day after figures revealed terror-related arrests in Great Britain have hit a new record high, with suspects held at a rate of more than one every day.

Police warned there is no such thing as a "typical terrorist" after official statistics showed rises in numbers detained across ethnicities and age groups.

There were 379 arrests for terrorism-related offences in the year ending June 2017, the highest number in a 12-month period since data collection began in 2001.

Police and MI5 are running 500 investigations involving 3,000 individuals at any one time, while there are also 20,000 former "subjects of interest" whose risk must be kept under review.

This is from Lizzie Dearden:

Mark Arnell, the director of Ride Republic, was leading a spinning class near the station when the explosion struck.

"A man came running in and said there had been a terror attack and everyone needs to get out," he said.

"Then the police came - the first one said we needed to leave or to get downstairs and hide, then the second one told us to evacuate.

"We got outside and police were banked all down the road and outside the school (Kensington Prep).

"People were running down the road and people were crying, there were loads of children."

ISIS have taken full responsibility for the attack by one of their "Islamic lions"

Re: Parsons Green Attack: Many Injured by Explosion on London Tube

An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of terror offences in connection with Friday's attack on a London Tube train.
The man was held in Dover on Saturday by Kent Police and taken to a local police station.
Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said the arrest was "significant", but the terror threat level remains at "critical".
Thirty people were injured after the explosion on a train at Parsons Green.
Most people were treated for minor injuries and have been released, the London Ambulance Service said, but three people remain in hospital.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd will be chairing a meeting of the government's Cobra emergency committee later.
