Police ‘identify suspect’ in hunt for terrorist behind Parsons Green blast
Passengers, including children, fled the District Line train after an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detonated at Parsons Green Station.
Eyewitnesses described a “fireball” and a “wall of flame” through the packed London Underground train after the blast, which happened at around 8.20am on Friday, as one commuter described how his hair was left singed by the blast.
A huge investigation led by the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command is now underway, said Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, with hundreds of detectives carrying out enquiries including examining CCTV, forensic work and speaking to eyewitnesses.
According to Sky News’ Home Affairs Correspondent Mark White, security sources say they have identified a suspect involved in the bombing with the help of CCTV footage.
