More 'incidents' in London

My daughter rang to let me know she was OK.

I didn't know anything was wrong! There have been further incidents in London, several tube stations were closed and reports from the BBC of a 'nail bomb' on a bus in the East End of London.

It appears that some of the tubes are up and running again now - but details are still sketchy.

It would appear that there were 4 unsuccessful bomb attempts - three on tube trains and one on a bus. No 'nail bomb', that just seems to have been journalistic license by TV reporters earlier today.

The stories are still pretty garbled, I'm afraid.
Friends and family are all safe.

AND SO IT CONTINUES

A suspected terrorist was shot dead on the London tube today.

He did not halt when challenged and told that the person challenging him was a plainclothes policeman.

My view is: if you don't stop when the police ask - then too bad.

BUT, because police do not routinely carry guns in the UK, it is a very shocking event.

They now have CCTV pictures of the 4 men they are hunting from yesterday's unsuccessful bombing attempts. The police will get them.
