Posted:A note to hoppers:

Try not to panic if any of you are trying to make calls into London, or worried about not getting a call from a friend or loved one - the mobile phone networks here are all suspended.

I guess this is a precaution, as mobile phone detonations were used in Madrid.

Posted:The BBC have said the police are shutting down mobile phone services incase the terrorist are using the phone system to set off the explosives. Don't panic if phones don't get answered. It may just mean that the system is down.

That's useful to know, thank you hug as I'm trying to get in touch with my sister. She lives near Goodge Street station but I know she's out as there's no reply from her landline. I just hope she wasn't on public transport frown



Edit: seemingly unconfirmed reports of security alerts at Swindon and Brighton stations eek

Posted:I have to say that watching the TV, there a lot of walking wounded, most of which look a bit shocked and covered in soot but not many looking badly hurt or bleeding. The police and ambulance personnel are keeping it very calm and moving people away from the area. There does not appear to be any panic, which is good. There have been confirmed 6 blast in the city and the police are saying that they believe they were caused by explosive devices.

tbh the news is pretty confused. There's been very little in the form of confirmed reports, the police arn't giving anything away. The bbc news is really just speculation from experts, phone calls from people who claimed to be there and correspondants listening to rumours.
