J7 London Bombings Dossier

 

Index 15 - Emergency Measures

 
Official version of events

Although little detailed information has been placed in the public domain (as far as the writer can trace) matters will have been handled under the guidelines set out in the London Resilience Strategic Emergency Plan. Scotland Yard’s Assistant Commissioner Alan Brown was Commander of the Gold Coordinating Committee on 7th July. There is no mention of the Civil Contingencies Act having been invoked but this may have been the case.

Query

Were the measures put in place proportionate to the four explosions that the authorities say took place or were they such as to indicate a larger series of incidents?

Exhibits (EM1-EM10)

EM1 shows that the Strategic Command Centre was, at 10.30am withdrawn from Scotland Yard and relocated in Hendon Police College.

EM2 records Sir Ian Blair as saying “within a matter of hours peace will be brought to the streets of London and we will know what we are dealing with”.

EM3, EM4 and EM5 contain references to the military being deployed on the streets of London.

EM6 - EM7 both refer to a suicide bomber being shot at Canary Wharf.

EM8, EM9 and EM10 report on emergency treatment centres being set up in schools; and at Camden Town Hall.

Related Information

Various.

Summary

The inference has to be that a lot more was happening than has been admitted in the official version of events.

EM2

Sir Ian Blair, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, conceded that the attacks were the sort of inevitable terror attack about which his predecessor, Sir John Stevens, had given warning.

"A co-ordinated effort is slowly bringing order out of the chaos," Sir Ian told Sky News. "Within a matter of hours peace will be brought to the streets of London and we will know what we are dealing with... Stay calm, stay where you are and trust the fact that a long co-ordinated plan is in action. London will return to normal as soon as possible."

Jim Wheble : Aldgate : 1159 BST
There have been a lot of ambulances coming up and down to Aldgate. Looking up from street level, I saw six or seven army officers in fatigues surveying Liverpool Street with binoculars from the rooftops.

Offices have been evacuated around Aldgate, with people coming out of their offices and not knowing what is going on. The situation here is a lot more controlled now.

Just a quicky, the shooting in Canary Wharf is still yet to be confirmed. However security officals have warned them at Reuters to take precautions and to hold on that until they confirm it to avoid any chance of panic

The shooting at Canary Wharf

I saw Lisatocket had reported this at somepoint yesterday, I got a phone call myself at about lunchtime yesterday saying that a friend had heard a man had been shot at Canary Wharf, obviously its still very sketchy to whether his happened, but I thought it might be worth mentioning that it's been reported in the South London Press.

* POLICE were yesterday probing reports a man had been "neutralised" outside Canary Wharf. Is is believed the man was shot dead by police marksmen outside the Credit Suisse First Boston bank. from South London Press /icsouthlondon.icnetwork.co.uk

I saw on the BBC that a suicide bomber had been shot by police in Docklands yesterday morning but reasonably quickly this was denied and I have not seen any more mention of this since.

Came into the office and spoke to a business associate who is based in Canary Wharf and she (+ 5 collegues) saw the police snipers shoot a man in the street. Now she is not somebody that is full of shit, I have know her for some time now and trust her 100%.

Current Mood: indescribable

I've just had a text message from Rachel (my little Rae of Sunshine). She's in London as was called in for holiday cover at Mirror Group where she works. She is locked in Canary Wharf Tower. The police have just shot a suicide bomber. She is safe but a bit freaked out.

She's not the only one...

Edit Just had text from gnommi She works at a hospital in London and they are now on major incident plan. Nobody is allowed home until the all clear is given. No food as the canteen is being used as an emergency ward.
