edited September 17 in Daily News

 

The station is located in the residential district of Parsons Green in Fulham, a high-end real estate area of Greater London.

The west London station where an explosion has left many injured is close to the district of Chelsea, north of the Thames.

The underground station of Parsons Green is on the Wimbledon branch of the District line, which connects Earl's Court to Wimbledon.

It is less than two miles away from Hammersmith, an area known for being West London's biggest business hub.

    London mayor: We will never be intimidated by terrorism

    London mayor Sadiq Khan has released a statement. He says: "The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that the explosion on a train at Parsons Green Station this morning is being treated as terrorism.

    "Our city utterly condemns the hideous individuals who attempt to use terror to harm us and destroy our way of life.

    "As London has proven again and again, we will never be intimidated or defeated by terrorism.

    "I am in close contact with the Metropolitan Police Service, Transport for London, Government and other emergency services who are responding at the scene and leading the investigation.

    "I will be attending the emergency COBRA meeting in Whitehall this afternoon with the Prime Minister.

    "My sincere gratitude goes to all our courageous emergency responders and the Transport for London staff who were first on the scene.

    "I urge all Londoners to remain calm and vigilant, and to check Transport for London's website for travel advice."

    'It looked home-made'

    Sylvain Pennec, a software developer from Southfields, near Wimbledon, who took images of the bucket, said: "I heard a boom and when I looked there were flames all around.

    "People started to run but we were lucky to be stopping at Parsons Green as the door started to open."

    He described what "looked like a bucket of mayonnaise", adding: "I'm not sure if it was a chemical reaction or something else, but it looked home-made."

    "I'm not an expert though."

    'Chemical smell on train'

    Chris Wildish, a passenger on the train, tells Sky News: “A chemical smell came from the train and then a stampede followed as people ran."

    He described an item on the train as a "white builder's bucket" with flames coming from it, wires hanging from it and emitting a strong smell of chemicals.

    He added: "A chemical smell more than a burning smell.”

    Mr Wildish said he saw "lots of burns", adding: "Lots of people burnt, singed hairs and then there were quite a few people who had injuries from falling, trying to get off the train. 

    “I saw some very distressed children. Very distressed ladies and one, slightly older gentleman, had very bad burns around his face.”

    Mr Wildish described the emergency services as "superb".

    "The first teams were there within minutes," he said.

    "Then we saw some firemen arriving and special ops arrived shortly after and took control very, very quickly.”

    “We kind of stood around the platform for a while, not knowing what to do or what was going on.

    "It’s a long train so the people at the top of the train wouldn’t necessarily have known what was going on on the back.”

    “The second thing is when there was a notice to leave the station, the crush for the stairs was pretty heavy because it’s a relatively narrow staircase and you've got a train full of people plus those waiting to get on.”

    UK terror threat raised from severe to critical


    The elevated terror threat level comes as Scotland Yard says it is "chasing down suspects" after the attack.

    The UK's terror threat level has been raised from severe to critical, indicating a further attack may be imminent.

    Theresa May said the decision follows an explosion on a Tube train in west London, which injured 29 people.

    Islamic State says a "detachment" of the terror group was behind the attack at Parsons Green station at the height of Friday morning's rush hour.

    Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley has said police are "chasing down suspects" - but warned it is routine for IS to say they carried out attacks irrespective of whether they were involved or not.

    Hunt for London terrorist who injured at least 29 people by planting home-made explosive fitted with timer on packed Tube train as jubilant ISIS claim it was carried out by cell of THREE jihadis


    British police are today hunting for the 'bucket bomber' who tried to blow up a rush hour Tube train and injured 29 people - but Donald Trump say the terror suspect was already in Scotland Yard's 'sights' before the attack. The crude IED could have killed dozens but failed to properly detonate and sent a 'wall of fire' through the carriage at Parsons Green Station injuring at least 22 people including a ten-year-old boy. Today officers are hunting for the bomber - and a potential cell - amid claims the terror suspect is armed with knives and may have left other devices. Terrified passengers were seen covered in blood with scorched hands, legs, faces and hair - others suffered crush injuries during a 'human stampede' as they 'ran for their lives' in west London at 8.20am. But the US President has sparked a diplomatic row after tweeting: 'Another attack in London by a loser terrorist and saying police should be 'more proactive'. Washington and London found themselves at loggerheads after the Manchester terror attack when US officials named the suicide bomber as Salman Abedi when police refused to say.

    Scotland Yard says it is "chasing down suspects" as a huge security operation is under way after the Parsons Green Tube bombing.

    A hunt is under way for the suspects behind the Parsons Green Tube bomb, as the UK's terror threat is raised to its highest level.

    'Significant' arrest over Parsons Green Tube train bombing


     

    An 18-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the Parsons Green Tube bombing that left 30 people injured.

    Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu described the arrest in Dover, Kent, as "significant", but added: "Although we are pleased with the progress made, this investigation continues and the threat level remains at critical."

    The teenager was held on suspicion of a terror offence in the port area of the town, which is the busiest ferry hub in Europe and serves as a commercial gateway to the French coast.

    Parsons Green bombing: Foster couple's home in Surrey searched by terror police

    The elderly pair were given MBEs in 2010 for their work with child refugees, as police investigate the Parsons Green bombing.

    A home in Surrey searched by anti-terror police investigating the Parsons Green bombing is owned by an elderly foster couple honoured for their work with child refugees.

    The property is registered to Ronald Jones, 88, and his 71-year-old wife Penelope, who were awarded MBEs in the 2009 New Year's Honours List for services to children and families.

    The search at the well-respected couple's house in Cavendish Road in Sunbury-on-Thames follows the "very significant arrest" of an 18-year-old in Dover.

    No further arrests have been made.
