Two explosions and police are investigating incidents at Edgware Road, Kings Cross, Liverpool Street, Russell Square, Aldgate East and Moorgate Tube stations.

Don't plan on going anywhere by tube for the next day or so...

Jeez, am away from London and SE1 am hearing about the explosions on the tube and buses...., hope everyone is ok.

just gets worse, sorry. Guess we'll all be leaving work early today...

one colleague got off the train at Liverpool St one minute before, quite a few white faces in the office at the moment. General advice seems to be to stay put for a while anyway - last thing wanted is streets full of people...

Am staying in. All very frightening. Hope all my SE1 friends are safe. Please give us a sign of life.

I was thinking the same Maurits!

There's soldiers all over the West End - it is quite odd.

Am safe . Was walking and wondering why today had so many sirens.

I'm OK (but must have gone past Edgware Rd just before anything happened). Wonder how I'll get back tonight. Are roads in the centre closed?

...if you press it, they will come.

Some roads are open (I'm just off Oxford Street) but very few cars, and certainly no buses. I hear they're closing bridges, does anyone know if this is true? I really want to get home but if I can't get across a bridge I might as well stay put.
