London paralysed after transport explosions

Incidents at several Underground stations around London, and explosions on London Buses are still unfolding, but initial hopes that it might simply be 'electrical faults' on the Underground with the nearly simultaneous bus explosions being 'coincidences' are now fading. It seems clear that all these incidents are the result of some kind of terrorist activity - it is far too soon to speculate who might be behind them, so I am not even going to bother to try for the present.

Just as I am writing this I am hearing that there have been some kind of incidents at both Swindon and Brighton railway stations - this is what BBC News24 are reporting just now.

My plan for this morning and early afternoon had been to go to the gym in Inverness and I think this is what I may still do - I hope it's not a case of 'fiddling while Rome burns'!
