Oh god, i hope all the London MUT'ers are ok..

Power surges have caused a number of blasts on London's Underground leaving several people injured.

The entire network has been shut down following explosions at Aldgate, Edgware Road, King's Cross, Old Street and Russell Square.

British Transport Police confirmed there are "walking wounded" and said paramedics have responded to one report of a person classed as "life at risk".

"It's chaos, with people trying to work out what has happened," said a spokesman.

One witness said the packed underground train he was on was 200 metres from King's Cross when there was a huge flash.

The train stopped and people were using umberellas to smash windows of the trains. Passengers were led out of the train by underground staff.

Clare Benson, 33, a city banker from Kensington, was on a tube at Edware Road where the second incident took place.

"I was in the last carriage at the back of the train nearest the tunnel when I heard a huge bang - you could feel it," she said.

"The lights went off for a couple of minutes and people were scared and wondering what to do.

"The drivers got out and were looking into the tunnel, then they announced that we should evacuate. My ears are still ringing and I was shaking."

There have been rumours already that it may have been a terrorist attack because London won the bid to host the 2012 Olympics yesterday but i think that's all rubbish. I just watched the news there & they said it was a power surge of some sort that caused the explosions.

Its frightening me now.. First i thought it was just the power-surge but now i'm thinking it has to be terrorism if its happening on buses etc. And as you said with all the police being in the Scotland for the G8 summit.

Hi all.

I just wanted to say thanx for all your concern.

I am ok. Luckily i have the day off today. Had i been at work, i may have been at Edgware Road when the explosions happened.

It's all really scary.

Thankfully my family are all ok too, though they are stuck in central London and hvae no idea how they are going to get home.

It said the group claimed the explosions were in retaliation for Britain's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Earlier, Arab sources told the BBC that the multiple attacks on London's transport system today were the work of the al-Qaeda terrorist network, the radio and TV station said.

It said security correspondent Frank Gardener, who is usually well informed, had been given the information by "Arab sources".

A number of British security and anti-terror experts have also spoken of a "coordinated attack" that bore the hallmark of terrorism.

i heard this on BBC news 24.it was going to happen in London one day... it was inevitable. and the best place for them to hit is the London Underground, as that is the best way to bring London to a halt.

Hi everyone thanks for your concern


Gawd it's so shocking, my thoughts and prayers are with everybody who has been caught up in todays attacks and also their friends and family.

It was so obvious that it was a terroist attack and not a power explosion, and they knew it was terrosit attack but used the power as an excuse so to try and not make people panick.

That's exactly what I've always said when people say terroists would hit Canary Wharf, I said no they are more likely to hit the London underground as this would bring London to a halt.

If Birmingham were to be targetted, i think the Bullring (where i work) and the Airport and Arenas would be main spots for terrorists. the thought does make me scared to go to work sometimes x

It is scary, but you can't live your life in fear, and that's why people continue to use the underground. I've often sat on the train and thought about how easy it would be for a terrosit to attack. Especially some stations where there are few lines running through them.
