The Metropolitan Police would also like to hear from people who were injured or involved in the events so that we know they are safe.
We are experiencing a very high volume of calls to this line – at present we are receiving 42,000 calls per hour. We would therefore urge anyone calling it to please be patient whilst we continue answering as many calls as possible.
The Casualty Bureau number should be used for this purpose only and NOT for general enquiries. Anyone with enquiries about travel information should contact Transport for London on 020 7222 1234 or www.tfl.gov.uk.
We would like to reassure people that we are working hard to gain an accurate picture of the whereabouts of people believed to have been involved in the incidents.
If you have reached home, please contact people who will be worried about you. This will help relieve the pressure on the Casualty Bureau.
All emergency calls should be made through the 999 system. Non-emergency calls should be made to your local police station.
We now know the total number of fatalities to be 37:
– there were 21 fatalities at King’s Cross / Russell Square
– there were 7 fatalities at Edgware Road
– there were 7 fatalities at Liverpool Street
– there were 2 fatalities on the bus at Upper Woburn Place.
The total number of casualties is known to be approximately 700. Of those, 300 were taken to hospital by ambulance and the remainder presented themselves at hospital.
There follows an outline of this morning’s events:
At 08.51 on 7 July at Liverpool Street Station there was an explosion in a train carriage 100 yards into the (Liverpool Street-bound station) tunnel.
At 08.56 there was another incident at King’s Cross / Russell Square. Both stations were used to bring out casualties.
There are two mortuaries for this incident – these are at the Royal National Hotel and the Holiday Inn in Bloomsbury.
At 09.17 there was an explosion on a train coming into Edgware Road underground station approximately 100 yards into the tunnel. This explosion blew through a wall onto another train on an adjoining platform.
Three trains are believed to have been involved.
At 09.47 there was an explosion on a bus at Upper Woburn Square junction with Tavistock Place.
There were four devices in total and there are 37 confirmed fatalities. There was no warning to police and we have not received any claims of responsibility.
These were callous attacks on innocent members of the public deliberately designed to kill and inflict maximum injury.
Please remain vigilant.
