J7 London Bombings Dossier

 

Index 21 - King's Cross to Euston Square

 
Official version of events

None. There has never been any mention of an incident between these two stations.

Query

Was there an explosion on a Circle Line train travelling between the stations that has gone unreported?

Exhibits (KC-ES1-KC-ES10)

KC-ES1. This extract from the Financial Times on line edition states categorically that Angelo Power was on the Circle Line when his train was rocked by an explosion “a few seconds after leaving Kings Cross.”

KC-ES3 & KC-ES4 both confirm that the Fire Brigade attended at Euston Square.

A number of exhibits contain reports of passenger experiences that are incompatible with them having been on the Kings Cross to Russell Square train. For example:-

KC-ES5, KC-ES6 & KC-ES7 refer to Ian Wade, a BBC employee and his wife Evelyn. He describes being in the next carriage to the bomb and, when the emergency services arrived, having to walk through the carriage in front to get out? Furthermore he and his wife ended up back at Kings Cross, rather than Russell Square? If, as stated he was travelling to work at the BBC in Marylebone then it is likely that he would have been on a westbound Circle Line train.

Summary

It is probable that the explosion did take place. It is unlikely that the FT would have got these details wrong. Angelo Power, who gave a live TV interview shortly after being rescued was quoted in many papers the next day but a lot of these reports are vague about the location. One has him coming through Manor House on the Piccadilly line rather than Mansion House. However it is the writers recollection that he did in fact say Mansion House.

KC-ES1

Angelo Power, a 43 year-old lawyer, was on London Underground’s Circle Line when a bomb went off. He said there had been an annoucement at Mansion House station saying there were technical problems on eastbound trains. A few seconds after leaving King’s Cross his train was rocked by an explosion. People were thrown from their seat screaming, he said, with smoke was pouring in and people trying to break the windows. Passengers were were stuck in the carriage for at least 30 minutes and the panic rose to levels of pandemonium, he said.

Blue Watch relive the bomb hell inside carriage 346A.
The call-out that came at 9.04am on 7 July seemed as routine as they come. Roche and his crew boarded engine Alpha 242 and set off. In his hand a strip of tickertape read: 'Smoke issuing at Euston Square tube' alongside the order that they should head as back-up to King's Cross nearby.

People with their clothes burned off, amputated limbs - those were the horrific images witnessed by Ian Wade who was caught up in the blasts as he travelled to work at BBC London in Marylebone.

Mr Wade was on an Underground carriage on the Piccadilly Line with his wife Evie when a bomb exploded in the carriage next to his around 0840 BST on Thursday.

“There must have been at least one death in there. I have never known anything like it."

Mr Wade and his wife were inside the carriage for 15 minutes before they were able to get out.

"When the emergency services arrived, we all had to walk through the carriage in front to get out.

KC-ES6

Evelyn Wade, 30 a Sloane Square estate agent was on the Tube with her husband between King's Cross and Russell Square when one of the bombs exploded.

As she joined the crowds swwarming away from the scene of the explosion, she said: "We thought we were going to die. There was this big explosion and people were screaming. No one moved and the lights went out. We started to move to the next carriage.

"Then we got into King's Cross and there was an emergency room where the really badly injured were. Police there gave us water. Lots of people were injured and apparently someone had died.

KC-ES8

Rob Raimes was in the busy front carriage. "The lights suddenly went out and there was a crescendo of noise," he said. "Smoke had got in and was everywhere. My first instinct was that we had something on the track.

"We were in there for about 10 to 15 minutes until the driver let us out and we walked to the platform. It was a complete shock. One minute you are travelling to work as usual and then I thought I was going to die."

Mr Raimes, 44, a lawyer from Finsbury Park, north London, stayed for nearly two hours after he reached the platform at King's Cross, helping others who had escaped the blast.

KC-ES9a/b

"THICK soot from the tracks flooded through the train; it was so difficult to breathe that people were kneeling down in the carriage to try to get some air. A lady in the first carriage was screaming and screaming. People were praying. We passed messages from carriage to carriage for about 20 minutes in the dim light, saying there was no fire and people should try to stay calm. We had been trapped for more than half an hour when we were evacuated through the back of the train. There were people in the first carriage too shocked to leave their seats, and policemen and London Underground staff were trying to get to the carriage to help them off the train. As soon as I got out of the tunnel I started crying as the shock kicked in.
Mandy Yu, 23, was on her way to work in Islington

5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Vox pop, Survivor:
"Well, I was in the front carriage at the front of the train within the first five or six seats near the driver, and we heard a loud bang which we presumed was a crash or maybe a derailment of some sort and when the lights went out and people screaming and the whole carriage was just shaking and rocking, and you could just smell smoke, burning, and it was just crazy, chaos and very, very frightening when that happened."
