Explosions reported on London Underground, bus
At least one person has been injured following reports of three small explosions on London’s transport system, police say.
The incidents came two weeks to the day since bombs on three Underground trains in London and a double-decker bus killed 56 people including four bombers.
CNN’s Matthew Chance said police told him a device exploded in or around Warren Street Tube station in the center of the British capital.
The area around the station has been sealed off and the Bomb Squad is on the scene to check for other explosive devices.
Transport Police told ITN there was an injury at Warren Street. There are no other reports of casualties.
Scotland Yard is also reporting an incident on a bus at Hackney Road and Columbia Road in east London. A witness said the bus is still intact and a bomb-sniffing dog was on the scene.
An explosion blew out the windows of a bus in the Hackney area of London on Thursday but there were no reports of injuries, bus operator Stagecoach said.
“The driver heard a bang he believed came from the upper desk of the bus. The windows were blown out. There are no reports of any injuries,” a Stagecoach spokesman said.
Police said initially they were not treating the evacuations as a “major incident.”
