London: not again!

'Incidents' spark Tube evacuation

Update: Three lines suspended, Warren Street and Oval tube stations involved.

Update 2: *deleted* An incident on the number 26 bus (Hackney) has been reported.

Update 3: *deleted*

Update 4: Apparently dummy explosions were used with detonators only. Prank? Fucking bad taste if it really was!

Update 5: Scotland Yard: Not a serious incident. *deleted*

Update 6: Argh...*deleted*...I am so pissed off! Just because of some pathetic bombs made by amateurish cunts!

Update 7: According to Tube Diary, the tube hasn't been shut down. Only the Hammersmith & City, Northern and Victoria Line.

Update 8: The police has cordoned off University College Hospital. Apparently one of the losers ran into the hospital.

Update 9: The mobile networks are coping well. Most in the office are on their mobiles so at least the network isn't jammed.

Update 10: Remember guys... these are all just rumours. I won't believe anything until I see it on the BBC, so you shouldn't too. *deleted*

Update 11: Met Police commissioner, Sir Ian Blair: four scenes of explosions/attempted explosions. Casualty numbers very low.

Update 12: Rumours of explosion inside University College Hospital.

Update 13: Tony Blair 3pm 3:15pm BST statement.

Update 14: Just heard off the radio, Ian Blair describing the situation as pretty serious.

Update 15 (14:52 BST): There is a liveblog going on at Europhobia. I love it when Nosemonkey describes that this attack would most 'likely to go down in history as the most half-arsed terrorist attack in history.' ROFL!

Update 16: BBC Radio Five Live here.

Update 17: *deleted*

Update 18: In other news: Malaysia unpegs the Ringgit. Many Malaysians keeping US dollars in banks loses money.

Update 19: Oi! They just shut down Shepherd's Bush and Uxbridge Road. Now I am angry. Where am I going to get me dinner?

Update 20: *deleted*

Update 21: I think I am going to get my late lunch now. I can't help it but posting being slightly chirpy. Today's event is no where near as serious as two Thursdays ago or anything Britain has experienced since 1998 when I first came to the UK.

Update 22: Where the hell is Tony Blair? Via the BBC a suspect package is being investigated on the number 37 bus to Peckham. The bus is off Putney Hill in St John's Avenue.

Update 23: Apparently a man has been arrested outside Downing Street and/or Ministry of Defence. Also there are reports of 'sour smell' on a couple of Tube stations. *deleted* Meanwhile the BBC is stating that this is a dummy hoax attack.

Update 24 (15:34 BST): According to Perfect, reporters are being told to turn off their cameras at Whitehall. A man has been arrested there and taken to Richmond House.

Update 25 (15:40 BST): Tony Blair is on the radio now. Should be on the telly too.

Update 26 (17:10 BST): Deleted irrelevant posts that may contribute to rumours.
