London blasts cause chaos on Tube

A number of Tube stations have been evacuated and lines closed after minor blasts in what Met Police chief Sir Ian Blair says is a “serious incident”. Sir Ian said only three Tube lines were still suspended and it was time London started to return to normal. The minor explosions – just two weeks after blasts killed 56 – involved detonators only, a BBC reporter said. In addition, a blast was reported on the top deck of a Number 26 bus in Hackney Road in Bethnal Green. There were no injuries and the bus suffered no structural damage. Eyewitnesses heard bangs and saw abandoned rucksacks at the sites of the incidents at Warren Street, Shepherd’s Bush Hammersmith and City line and Oval tube stations as well as the number 26 bus. At Warren Street and Oval a man was seen running away from the scene. Large areas around all four sites were cordoned off.Full Story
