Somethings happened again in London

Warren street, shepherds, bush and oval.
Im not entirely sure whats happened, its just come up on the news. THey think there may have been shootings, somethings been found on a train too. Happersmith tube station has been closed off.
Gun shots went off in warren street. Windows have been blown out in buildings.

No one knows exactly what has happened, I will post more as we find out.
Looks like there might be a bomb on a bus.

Edit, it looks like there may not have been any guns.
There were bombs left set to go off, none of them went off. The bangs were the detanators going off, thankgod it looks like the bombs didnt go off tho.

This is so scary, I bet the people over there are scared out of their minds. Just people going to work and something like this happening.

Yep exactly. Sadly the thing these suicide bombers mainly want to do is kill people, thats it. Kill as many people as they posibly can.

It wasn't very serious, especially in comparisson to the last one, with only 1 confirmed injury. Seemingly (from what my mum heard on the news in London) the bombs did not contain enough explosives to detonate and were just dummy bombs.

London has seen four small blasts and three tube stations have been evacuated but police have said they are not treating this as a major incident.

Police have requested that members of the public stay where they are for now until they can work out the effect of the blasts.

At least one person is reported to have injured at Warren Street tube station. Reports also say there has been a nail bomb at the station, and that emergency services personnel wearing chemical suits have gone into the station. Armed police are reported to have cordoned off and to have entered University College Hospital in central London, near to Warren Street.

A small blast is reported on a No 26 bus near Columbia Road in east London, travelling from Waterloo to Hackney, whose windows were reported to have blown out.

Smoke has been seen coming from Oval station which the emergency services are investigating, but police have said there is no sign of chemical agents there. Reports suggest a young Asian man carrying a rucksack was seen running from the station, chased by others.

A blast was also reported at ground level at Shepherd's Bush tube (on the Hammersmith & City line). A separate Central line station also at Shepherd's Bush is said to be unaffected.

Crowds congregated on either side of Shepherd's Bush Green, the nearby park. The area is closed to traffic with vehicles being diverted off the main Shepherds Bush roundabout.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair has said there have been four blasts or attempts at blasts, none as large as in the terror attacks of two weeks ago.

It is being reported that only the detonators went off.

The Hammersmith & City, Bakerloo, and Northern tube lines have been closed. The Victoria line has re-opened either side of Warren Street.

It is two weeks to the day since the London bombings, when three suicide bombers detonated bombs on Tube trains in the capital and a fourth blew himself up on a bus.
