Just spoke to X who has spoken to scotland yards ellite special forces unit he used to work for who are the first point of contact for terrorist attacks.

Apparently 4 bombs in rucksacks were dettonated but for some reason didnt go off.
One of the suicide bombers looked very uncomfortable as a small puff of smoke came out his rucksack and then he bolted off the train. 3 people wrestled him to the ground but he managed to escape.
Another suicide bomber was also chased by SO19 into a hospital which has now been shut down and they are currently trying to sort the problem out.

Some of the train lines are now back working
