    Terror investigation launched -suspicious item detonated - London tube station

    Shortly after 11:00hrs on Thursday, 20 October, the British Transport Police was called to North Greenwich Underground Station after train staff reported finding a suspicious item on a train travelling eastbound on the Jubilee Line.

    The station was evacuated and remains closed.
    Specialist officers from the Met and BTP are in attendance and a controlled detonation has since taken place to ensure the item is safe.
    While we are keeping an open mind, the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command is leading the investigation because it has the expertise to deal with incidents of this kind. British Transport Police is supporting them in their investigation.
    If anyone saw anything suspicious on this particular train or anywhere else we would urge them to call the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321, in an emergency always call 999.
    We are asking travellers to check with Transport for London before starting their journey.

    UK is on a heightened state of terrorist alert stoked by fears that an attack by Islamist extremists is highly likely. But there is also the threat of an attack from dissident Irish republicans, which in May was raised to substantial, meaning a terrorist attack is a strong possibility.

    was prompted when a worker discovered an abandoned bag “full of wires”.

    a passenger handed a bag to the driver, who took it in into his cab thinking it was lost property. He became suspicious and on closer inspection was able to see wires in the bag, and according to some reports, a clock or some kind of electrical equipment.

    Staff follow a training procedure known as ‘HOT’ – is the object hidden, obvious, typical?

    “However, in light of very serious concerns raised about security by our members following the alarming events, we are urgently pressing for an emergency and immediate security summit withLondon Underground, British Transport Police, Scotland Yard and City Hall.
    “Our members are telling us that they are scared and that the company is giving them scant reassurance. The network should be shut until we are given assurances that it’s made as safe as possible for them and for passengers.“

    When I first saw this I thought why dont we just blow up an item like they did -- we cause just as much disruption doing it our way but someone could get blown up -- blow it up .

    I kinda think it is a "hangover" from the old days when you can tell who did it by bomb type, but I think those days are gone moo
