a getting there
Police are raiding the Peabody Estate in Notting Hill, North Kensington (near the Ladbroke Grove, Westborne Park and Notting Hill Gate Stations.) A cordon has been thrown around a wide area. Several homes have been raided and there have been a number of controlled explosions. No report of stations being closed as yet.

I am approximately 1/2 mile away, near enough to hear and see the helicopters going overhead but nothing else. I am giving details from the TV News. They did not mention the roads in the area but I would assume that several will be closed. The situation is on-going at present. Most recent reports state that some police are wearing gas-masks. (This is a very crowded urban area.)

Posted 1.30p.m. BST from North Kensington.

Two more of the failed London bombing suspects are believed to have been arrested as police carry out a number of armed operations in London.

A BBC correspondent said they were thought to be the suspected Oval Tube and Number 26 bus bombers.
