This is our 9/11.

My husband is here as he's off with a bad back. As soon as the news came through he said "bombs", 20 years of policing he's done, don't believe this shit about power surges. If you are in central London now get the fuck out, walk.

Intresting Edware Rd was selected, opposite Paddington Green nick, where terrorist suspects are interogated. Also Liverpool st, which serves Londons financial district.

Up until the bus explosions, it was still being claimed it was a 'power surge', a cover story obviously invented not to cause panic. Radio 2 were still claiming this at 11am.

Controlled exposions gives the impression it wasnt suicide bombers.

the 'security services' have temporarily taken over all vodafone's offices and operations, due to the inherent security risk posed by large and sophisticated cellular networks (inside news, as it were)

Just a quicky, the shooting in Canary Wharf is still yet to be confirmed. However security officals have warned them at Reuters to take precautions and to hold on that until they confirm it to avoid any chance of panic

As for the shooting thing ... obv. the guy can't say too much, but my mate at reuters def. made it sound like they weren't being ALLOWED to release the story, rather than it might not be true ....

Just been denied by the police (BBC)

The shooting at Canary Wharf

I saw Lisatocket had reported this at somepoint yesterday, I got a phone call myself at about lunchtime yesterday saying that a friend had heard a man had been shot at Canary Wharf, obviously its still very sketchy to whether his happened, but I thought it might be worth mentioning that it's been reported in the South London Press.

* POLICE were yesterday probing reports a man had been "neutralised" outside Canary Wharf. Is is believed the man was shot dead by police marksmen outside the Credit Suisse First Boston bank. from South London Press /icsouthlondon.icnetwork.co.uk

I saw on the BBC that a suicide bomber had been shot by police in Docklands yesterday morning but reasonably quickly this was denied and I have not seen any more mention of this since.

Came into the office and spoke to a business associate who is based in Canary Wharf and she (+ 5 collegues) saw the police snipers shoot a man in the street. Now she is not somebody that is full of shit, I have know her for some time now and trust her 100%.

from carriage one, Kings X, to those looking for missing

After detailed anti-terrorism staff interview I found out some stuff I needed to share.

The King X bomb was placed at the END of the first carriage, not the first set of doors on the front carriage as reprted on the news.

The tube tunnel was very narrow here, and the train was very crowded, which was why most of the people were killed and hurt at the back of carriage 1/ beginning of carriage 2.

I heard this from the counter-terrorism police who took my statement today: the BBC and ITN were wrong in their first reports.

 From being there about 7-10 yards from blast, I can say that there were about 30- 50 behind me therefore who may not have got out alive. About 10 behind me walked to safety.

I understand that there are about two thirds of this number missing. I can also say that when I was at University College Hospital there was one woman at least that I saw with total amnesia who had no idea of her name, address, anything, so please therefore do not give up hope, if you are searching, yet. There is a small hope.

I can also say that the blast was very intense, so if you were rightnext to it, it would have been almost instantaneous, because the tube tunnel was so small, and the train so rammed, those next to it would have taken the full force of the blast.

I do not know what else to say, I am sorry.

I visited my workmates who were on the bus.

The one who broke her cheekbones was looking understandably busted up and was a bit doped as she'd had a lot of surgery. I was glad to see it was mostly just swelling around her face - she's a beautiful girl and I was worried there would be permanent damage to it, but she'll look fine once it all heals. She's getting away without needing metal plates anywhere, which is good news.

The other girl was much more awake and lively - they've removed lots of glass and shrapnel from her legs, but they're tightly wrapped up. They're basically having to leave the wounds open but clean in order to perform grafts and have them look as unscarred as possible. She said she wasn't too uncomfortable but I suspect it will be some time before she can bend and move her legs normally. But she's a really positive person and is very close to her family (as is the other girl - her husband, sister and mum were there) so she has a lot of resources to help her through this.

The worse thing is that she told me why they were on that bus - they were told to get off the tube and then, not being sure where to go, decided to take the 30 as it said 'Kings Cross' and they thought they'd get something useful from there.

They were at Euston.

If only one of them had known that it was just a 500m walk away they needn't have got on a bus at all.

 But I guess a lot of people who don't go overground much don't know things like that.
