Dummy explosions using detonators only have sparked the evacuation of three Tube stations and the closure of three lines, a BBC correspondent has said.

Police cordoned off large areas around Warren Street, Oval and Shepherd's Bush Tube stations.

Emergency services also attended an incident on a route 26 bus in Hackney Road in Bethnal Green.

There were reports of smoke coming from two of the stations. There are no reports of any injuries.

The whole of the Northern Line has been suspended, along with the Victoria Line and the Hammersmith and City.

A spokesman for London Underground said the nature of the incidents was unknown.

One hospital, near Warren Street station, has started its emergency plan.

Sosiane Mohellavi, 35, was travelling from Oxford Circus to Walthamstow when she was evacuated from a train at Warren Street.

"I was in the carriage and we smelt smoke - it was like something was burning. "Everyone was panicked and people were screaming. We had to pull the alarm. I am still shaking."

But a BBC reporter outside Warren Street station said there was no sign of smoke outside.

Minor explosions using detonators only have sparked the evacuation of three Tube stations and the closure of three lines, a BBC correspondent has said.

Police cordoned off large areas around Warren Street, Oval and Shepherd's Bush Tube stations.

A route 26 bus in Hackney Road in Bethnal Green had its windows blown out by a blast. There were no injuries.

Police in London say they are not treating the incidents as "a major incident yet".

One person was injured at Warren Street, although the person's condition is unknown.

The whole of the Northern Line has been suspended, along with the Victoria Line and the Hammersmith and City line.

The BBC's Andrew Winstanley said devices had been found but appeared to have been dummies.

London Underground went to an amber alert with trains taken to the next station and evacuated.

An eyewitness at Oval station said there had been a small bang, and a man had then run off when the Tube reached the station.

A spokesman for Stagecoach said the driver of the number 26 bus travelling through Shoreditch had heard a bang on upper deck, gone upstairs and seen the windows were blown out.

The bus driver was very shaken but said to be fine.

At Shepherd's Bush station, police told reporters that a man had threatened to blow himself up and then ran off.

Sosiane Mohellavi, 35, was travelling from Oxford Circus to Walthamstow when she was evacuated from a train at Warren Street.

"I was in the carriage and we smelt smoke - it was like something was burning.

"Everyone was panicked and people were screaming. We had to pull the alarm. I am still shaking."

The BBC's Rory Barnett said there had been no smoke on the platform at Warren St.

Liz Edwards, who works near Warren Street Underground station, said the area was full of activity.

"There are police, fire engines and ambulances all around there. A guy from our office had just come back from the station and said the police were aggressively keeping people away from the station and that you could not get anywhere near it."

What kind of world are we living in??.

I obviously don't know what exactly happened, but no matter if it was another attack or just some copycat's idea of a joke, it just makes me sad.

Not easy times indeed. It's how you react that matters in the long run. Those of you in the UK must be vigilant now more than ever--not just against terrorists but in your own governments' response! ONLY they can take your freedoms away... in the name of security. This happened here after the 9-11 attacks, and I am sure it will happen again. Every time a little bit of freedom is lost... :(

Take care then, and make sure your leaders make a carefully considered response to these horrible events.

I've visited London 2 times this year (business purposes). I have back from London to Serbia 10 days from the first blast.

I have also been on holidays in Kusadasi (Turkey) few weeks ago. There was also a blast, 7 days after i came back.

Unbeliveable

And London will have the Olympics in the future. Hope this is sorted by then. Imagine the disruption with all those extra people on the underground.

...a voice from the darkness.....

This is horrible indeed... :( And guess what happened to me yesterday? I met a man who said that "they do deserve that", after he heard the news - You can imagine, I almost exploded inside (although I didn't say anything), and I'm still very angry to remember that guy's words... :mad: That was one bad experience, what I will never forget, I think. And now we can ask again the question about "What kind of world are we living in??" - where people don't care each other, where people want innocents to be killed, where these blastings are "righteous"...? Seriously, things are just getting worse and even worse... Well, I definitely want to QUIT! :mad:

Thank God that nobody died this time. And take care, All...
