London bombing victims remembered - BBC report on the 2 minute silence today.

I personally found it quite moving. No sirens, hardly any traffic, not even the police dogs made a sound.

There's also a brief mention of the searching of a house in Aylesbury this morning, but nothing detailed.
12:49 pm - Wembley

Does anyone know what's happening and if it's connected to last week?

There is a massive plume of smoke coming from the side of Wembley Stadium, people here reckon it's Wembley Park station, no word at all on the news sites, theories abound...
I took this on my phone:

OK, it's not a bomb - BBC News Ticker says "Factory on fire in Wembley area - 10 crews attending. More soon."

The BBC Radio 2 news has just reported the evacuation of more houses in the Beeston area of Leeds, with a controlled explosion within the past half hour.

Update:

In Leeds, a controlled explosion was carried out in the Beeston area after police cordoned off several streets and evacuated residents.

They have been told by police to take enough clothes with them for three days.

Earlier, police had lifted a cordon around another neighbourhood after it was found that a suspect substance in one house was not hazardous.
