London Incidents 7 July 2005
Emergency Telephone Number - 0870 1566 344
July 12th, 2005 
Hi guys,

I managed to royally screw my ankle yesterday at work, and was reluctant to go along to A&E because I assumed the hospitals would still be up to their ears in problems from the bombings (OK, possibly not the most sensible of assumptions, but I was in mild shock ;)

However, we went to UCL, and their A&E at least seems to be very calm and quiet, and well-staffed - so if anyone else is injuring themselves in non-emergency ways and is worried about making a fuss - don't be daft, they do seem to be coping fine.

It's possibly also worth making sure that if you're going by taxi that the taxi driver drops you off at the NEW entrance - the old one is no longer in use, and is round the other side of the block, which is a long way if you've crippled yourself!
09:24 am - US Servicemen
Hi everyone,

I live in East Anglia (Suffolk) and we have a number of US servicemen around here due to the airbase we have here, or have had in the past.

On the local news this morning I heard that the US has ordered troops to stay away from London, or anywhere near the M25. Apparently this is due to security and safety reasons and apparently to keep them out of the way of the police’s clear up opperation. *Shrugs.*

I am not going to comment any further other than to present the facts. You may view that as you will, as will the terrorists no doubt.

The original source was SGR FM Ipswich and later The Times Online.

Appologies if this is not the right place to post this, but I thought it was a notable and official reaction to the events of last week.

Both AP and Reuters are reporting that detectives from London, together with local officers, searched four properties in West Yorkshire under warrants issued under the Terrorism Act and were examining a fifth.

The searches were part of a pre-planned intelligence-led operation, a spokeswoman said, but there have been have been no arrests at this stage.

"The searches are in connection with the terrorist attacks in London on July 7," she added.

An anti-terrorist police spokeswoman said the searches were thought to be "significant".

Tuesday's operation was the first reported swoop in what police describe as the biggest crime scene investigation in English history.

My company has just sent emails around stating that they've been advised of a security alert at Edgware road, and asking employees to avoid the area.

"We have reason to believe that all the 4 of the suicide bombers died in each incident"

"One of the bodies found on the bus have lead the police up into Yorkshire" (to continue their enquiries)

"2 more victims have been named"

Snippets from the LBC 97.3 news update.

Paraphrasing from live radio broadcast, so no direct quotes (though some are almost direct).

Today six search warrants were issued under Terrorism Act.
All four suspects (who had previously been watched) arrived in London by train on Thursday, July the 7th, appearing on CCTV at Kings Cross station shortly before 08:30. All four are now believed to have been killed in the explosions, with documents relating to the suspects found close to the sites of the three underground explosions, and personal effects found close to the bus explosion.
At Luton a vehicle was found in the station car park.
One man has been arrested in West Yorkshire and will be brought to London for further questioning.
