so far all we have been told is that there has been 1 explosion on a bus and 6 on tube stations...there is a lot of speculation going on at the moment.

My mom caught me as I was walking to the shower this morning and told me! I sat infront of the television until the last moment before I had to go to work. My thoughts and heart are with you London, and T-punks be safe!

Guys, Tavistock Place is where the bus got blown to hell. That's right near the Generator hostel. *takes off hat*

This is horrible! 3 explosions on the tube and 1 on the bus... These cowards (whoever they may be) are attacking unarmed civilians - men, women and children - on their way about their day to day business. This is truly a tragedy.

My condolences and prayes go out to everyone involved - especially those killed and injured in the attack.

I heard on the news that it was in a mainly a Muslem district aswell near Britians largest mosc, just goes to show how indiscriminate they are. It was the European jihad group apparently.

This is awful... no one in London (or elsewhere) should be subjected to such violence. At the same time, I can't say I'm at all surprised nor shocked by any of it, which is probably even more awful.

Anyway, I've got my worries, too - my uncle often grabs a coffee by the Edgware Rd tube station, and I still haven't gotten an email back from him.

Awful doesn't really begin to describe it. Omi & Belle, I hope your family/friends are okay. My heart lurched into my chest because my auntie was going to run some errands in London this week (she lives in Birmingham). I don't know if she ended up going or not.

My thoughts are with everyone affected by the blast. It is another terrible, sad day. It's so senseless.

I hope this does not make people afraid to travel. You need to live your life and not be afraid.

as lfd said..please dont be afraid to travel. London will need your support and tourism to help regenerate a sense of not allowing terrorists/extremists win this unjust battle
