    Watching the news here now. Bombs blew up various buses and tubes. Obviously an act of terrorism. BBC news website is down from the traffic I believe.

    London Underground Closed; Explosions Reported in London

    The entire London Underground rail network has been closed following a series of power surges across the network. Some of the power surges have caused explosions and police are advising that there are a number of ‘walking wounded’ injuries. All stations are being evacuated. Reports also indicate that there may have been a number of explosions on London buses, which are also being taken out of service.
    Initial reports indicate that blasts occurred at the Edgware Road and Aldgate stations, and that power surges affected the Russell Square, King’s Cross and Old Street stations. Police are treating the situation as a ‘major incident’.

    There are also unconfirmed reports that at least one explosive device may have been placed on the Underground, although police have not commented on this. Another unconfirmed report suggests that there may have been an explosion on a double-decker bus in Russell Square. *** will update this advisory as more information becomes available.


    ***Comment

    Due to rapid changes in the situation, it is not yet possible to assess whether this is a system failure, terrorist attack or a combination of the two. Nevertheless, the closure of the entire Underground network will cause significant travel disruption for some time, even after the suspension of services is lifted. The closure of the network is highly likely to force commuters into buses and taxis, which will not have the capacity to transport the enormous number of people who use the Underground system, particularly as the power surges occurred during a peak travelling time. In addition to the suspension of services on the Underground, road closures, diversions and significant traffic congestion to the point of gridlock should be expected.


    Travel Advice

    *** members are advised that there may be a major security threat and that there will undoubtedly be severe travel delays. Due to the reason for the system failure, it is assessed that the network will not be fully operational for some time. The current situation on the Underground may also affect London’s above ground rail network where stations are shared. The suspension of the Underground will also place a significant burden on alternative transport from Heathrow airport, particularly the M4 motorway and the Heathrow Express rail link.

    *** members are advised to avoid all major transport nodes. The mobile telephone system appears to have been suspended. Landline communications should be used if possible.
