Metropolitan police confirmed that the explosion on a Parsons Green underground train is being treated as a “terror-related incident” with several burn injuries being reported by the media.
A manhunt is underway after an improvised explosive device failed to fully detonate on a London underground train, filling carriages with “acrid smoke” and injuring dozens.
Several witnesses and media have reported that passengers have suffered “facial burns” with NHS England and the Metropolitan Police confirming that 22 people are injured, mostly from flash burns, but none seriously.
The device was described as a white builders’ bucket in a foil-lined bag with wires coming out of the side and fire from the top. Sources are reporting the device had a timer.
