    Bucket Bomb Terror attack on London Underground, 15 September 2017

    Breaking News

    "Police are today hunting for the 'bucket bomber' who tried blow up a rush hour Tube train amid claims that he is armed and may have left other devices.

    The crude device could have killed dozens but failed to properly detonate and sent a 'wall of fire' through the carriage injuring at least 18 people including a ten-year-old boy.

    Terrified passengers 'ran for their lives' and were seen covered in blood with scorched hands, legs, faces and hair after the incident at Parsons Green station in west London at 8.20am.

    Photographs from the District Line train show what experts believe is a 'pretty unsophisticated' bomb in a flaming white bucket inside a Lidl freezer bag with Christmas lights connected to a battery protruding out of the top.

    Witnesses said there was a loud 'bang', a flash and then a ball of flame engulfed surrounding passengers.

    Scotland Yard say it was a terror attack but could not confirm claims there is another device and the suspect is on the run - but an officer at the scene told MailOnline: 'We believe there is a second bomb - there is a man with knives on the loose.'

    Statement from the Assistant Police Commissioner

    "At 8.20 this morning at Parsons Green tube station there was an explosion on a tube train. Police have attended. We now assess that this was a detonation of an Improvised Explosive Device.

    As you will have seen there are reports of 18 injuries. I understand most of those to be flash burns. The scene currently remains cordoned off and the investigation continues.

    The investigation is being led by the Metropolitan Police counter terrorism command. And there are many urgent inquiries ongoing now with hundreds of detectives involved looking at CCTV, forensics work and speaking to witnesses.

    This investigation is supported by our colleagues from MI5 bringing their intelligence expertise to bear on the case.

    Londoners can expect to see an enhanced police presence, particularly across the transport system across today.

    Any member of the public with any information about this incident should please call us as a matter of urgency. If they want to give us any background information they can call us on the anti-terrorism hotline on 0800 789 321.

    Anybody with images from the incident can contact us.

    I would ask the public to remain vigilant across London, but not to be alarmed.

    TERROR ON THE TUBE: Police search for ANOTHER bucket bomb after at least 20 people, including children, are injured when home-made explosive device sends 'fireball flying down train carriage'

    Eyewitness account of the bomb

    Rory Rigney, said he had just got on the tube train - one of the last to board - when the explosion happened only a few feet away.

    “I thought ‘did someone smash something’. It sounded like a smash then I heard a scream and thought ‘it’s someone having a fight’. Then I saw the fireball coming towards me - yellow or orange. My face still feels warm. I wasn’t hanging around to get a better look at it,” he told reporters.

    Rigney added: “It smelled like a fire extinguisher and there was this foam on the floor. It looked like foam from a fire extinguisher. And he described seeing “red wires” coming out of the bucket in the Lidl plastic bag.

    The 37-year-old from Dublin said he saw one woman who “looked like she had been burnt - they were pouring water on her face - and an older couple who weren’t as bad”.

    He described jumping off the train through the still-open doors as the fireball came towards him.

    The explosion, he said, “wasn’t massively loud but then there was a scream and then I looked down the corridor and there was a big flash of light coming down and my immediate reaction was just to jump”.

    Rigney told reporters: “The doors were still open, so I jumped out and tried to get as far away as possible, got on the ground and covered myself. I looked back and, obviously, there were so many people trying to get out they were falling on top of each other, so there was a bit of a crush at the door. People were just panicking getting away and there was a lot of screaming.

    “For the next probably, thirty seconds, a minute, people were just getting on the ground. They didn’t know what to do, there was a lot of fear.”I think about a minute or so passed, people [were] wondering actually what happened. We couldn’t say what kind of bang it was. There was still a smell ... No one was sure if it was an electrical explosion just from something on the train, so no one was - at that stage - thinking anything more sinister than that.”

    “We just stayed around and people were grabbing their bags and phones from the train ... then we were being told to get off the platform, so that was ... up to five minutes till then and, at that stage - when started moving down the stairs, we also saw the armed police coming up the other side.”

    When we got out, the emergency services were there ... and they were starting to cordon off the area and police were starting to take interviews from any people on the train who had information.”

    22 people are now injured

    Police sources are playing down fears of a coordinated attack across the London transport network.

    On the train itself there is only one device being investigated. There is no second device.

    Sources also denied there was a knifeman on the train and said there was was no known further incident after the initial discovery of the IED.

    There is no belief that some sort of general bombing campaign of London’s transport network, such as 7/7 21/7 is underway. It is being treated as an isolated incident.

    Don't forget today is FRIDAY! and inspirational meet-ups only start around 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
    One should not praise the day until it is done.

    Meanwhile in France, a man has attacked a soldier of the anti-terror military near Chatelet. This is also treated as terror-related.

    Many of the victims will be scarred for life with burns to the face and the head. This is no minor attack to those who are involved. Not at all.

    There are children among them.

    The terrorist is still on the run.





    Explosives experts say the Parsons Green bomb could have killed dozens if it had properly detonated at rush-hour this morning.

    The homemade device is believed to be the same type that was used in the Boston Marathon bombings. Experts believe the device was some kind of crude “pressure cooker bomb” that did not detonate properly.

    In April 2013, two such homemade bombs detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon killing three people and injuring several hundred more - several of whom lost limbs.

    Thank you for your updates ZaZara. I hope and pray there are no more devices planned for people getting home tonight and in the days ahead.

    "There was out of the corner of my eye a massive flash of flames that went up the side of the train," eyewitness Chris Wildish told Sky News, then "an acrid chemical smell."

    Another commuter, Richard Aylmer-Hall, said he saw several people injured, apparently trampled as they fled what he described as a packed train. Wildish said many of those on board were schoolchildren, who were knocked around as the crowd surged away from the fireball.

    At capacity, the train could hold more than 800 people.
    "I saw crying women, there was lots of shouting and screaming, there was a bit of a crush on the stairs going down to the streets," Aylmer-Hall, said.

    hi Gregg

    TY for starting this thread.

    It just occurred to me for lack of a better word it is better if they are suicide bombers at least we know they are dead

    Its like having a boogie man running around . They obviouly are piss$ed that it failed somehow thankfully but seems like it would make perp madder.

    It actually seems like this perons are not wanting to die -- they fled moo
