News in at 18.00

One London bomber likely to have been killed in blast

The police news conference was shown on BBC News (
see video) and Deputy Assistant Commissioner Peter Clark and Assistant Commissioner Andy Hayman said they had CCTV footage of the men. Police believe at least one of four suspected London bombers died in Thursday's tube and bus blasts.

One man has been arrested and six arrest warrants issued following a series of raids around Leeds in West Yorkshire, (190 miles) north of London), in connection with the investigation, Clarke said.

Clarke said all four bombers had arrived in London by train at King's Cross station on the morning of the attacks. All three of the bombed underground trains passed through the station.

See the full police statement from The Times Online.

[16.30 - Update from Annie]

Both Sky News and BBC News 24 (see 6th paragraph) are saying that the bomber responsible for the explosion on the Number 30 London bus was believed to be among the 13 people killed on board. Both have cited police sources, although Sky News are saying that all four bombers are amongst the dead. I don't believe that an official police statement has been made confirming this yet, but watch the TV or listen to the radio for more on this.
