Journal SimianOverlord's Journal: Explosions in London

Breaking news on the BBC.

First reports suggested a power surge on the London Underground stopped trains and possibly caused a collision. Since then I've heard:

whole Underground has been closed

About 30 deaths according to eyewitness who had spoken to police

An eyewitness said a litterbin had exploded

Recently, there have been reports of a bus exploding.

Watching it on the bbc website, listening on 5 live

Too early to say what is really going on.

UPDATE: National Gird have confirmed there was no power surge. Areas have been cordoned off, fatalities have been reported.
