BREAKING: Another potential terror attack in London


London Underground passengers have been injured following an explosion on a District Line train in south-west London.

Police and paramedics were called at 8.30 BST (9am CAT) this morning to Parsons Green station in Fulham.

Pictures show a white bucket on fire inside a supermarket bag, but does not appear to show extensive damage to the inside of the Tube train carriage.

Witnesses described seeing at least one passenger with facial injuries.

Others have spoken of “panic” as alarmed passengers left the train at Parsons Green station.

London Ambulance Service says it has sent a hazardous area response team to the scene.

Passenger, Chris Wildish, told BBC Radio 5 Live that he saw a bucket in a supermarket bag with “low-level flames coming out of it” by the door of the rear carriage.

One witness, called Luke, told 5 Live there was “a sort of loud explosion”.

“It happened just as we were pulling up to the Tube station so everyone just sort of piled out of the Tube and there was a distinct smell of burning,” he said.

“I certainly saw some burning injuries,” he said, but added that “everyone behaved in the right manner as such, everyone got off as quickly as they can and you know supported everyone”.
