An explosion on a London underground tube train has left the passengers with serious burns and injuries. The incident took place around 8.21 am(London time) in the morning when “a fireball flew down a carriage” at Parson Green tube station. It is also believed that the explosion came from a shopping bag left by the tube carriage door. The pictures on social media show wires coming out of a bucket inside the bag.


Chris Wildish, who was traveling on the train, said he saw a “device” in the last carriage. “It was a white bucket, a builder’s bucket, in Lidl bag,” he told BBC.
