Officers from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command are investigating after an incident on a London tube train this morning. Police were called at approximately 08:20 BST on Friday, 15 September to Parsons Green Underground Station following reports of a fire on the train. Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the senior national coordinator for CT policing, has declared it a terrorist incident. Officers from the Metropolitan Police Service and British Transport Police attended the scene, along with colleagues from the London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance Service. At present we are aware of a number of people who have suffered injuries. It is too early to confirm the cause of the fire, which will be subject to the investigation that is now underway by the Met's Counter Terrorism Command. The station remains cordoned off and we are advising people to avoid the area.

An amateurish bomb in a bucket (sounds like the fertiliser and sugar bombs we used to make as kids?) which is the kind of thing you'd think would get noticed but I guess morning commuters would be focused on the journey to work and less attentive than usual.

I hope they get the sick bastards.

Looks like Mr Plod has got his work cut out. Last night it was 20,000 Herman Gelmets causing chaos at the Emirates so by the time things had resumed to normality they were probably looking forward to a well earned lie-in this morning. Still, at least they got a thank you from the government with a 1% pay rise.

...or a 2% pay cut in real money.
