According to Sky News:
Power surges have caused a number of blasts on London's Underground leaving dozens of 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".


They are now reporting a bus explosion.

It's looking very worrying indeed. We can only watch and pray for the time being.

This from the BBC website:

"PA [a news agency] also quoted Union officials as saying sources had told them there had been at least one explosive device on the Underground."

If this is true it is extremely suspicious and a shocking coincidence the day after we get the Olympics.

Reports of three buses, but it would appear that two were the same?

Top of double decker blown off, this is no power surge, my only concern, what is this the beginning of?

Reports will be confused for some time until the chaos subsides.

Tony Blair not to leave G8 Summit, sorry but he should get his arse down there! Never mind dealing with helping other countries when his own is at risk today!

It think its best not to speculate until confirmation of whats happened by the authorities.
