In central London, an explosion ripped through a bus just minutes after an earlier blast rocked the underground.
"We are at Tavistock place and we have had a bus explode just outside the building," said an official for the London Transport Police, adding that his offices were close to Russell Square.
A second explosion was later heard at Tavistock Square.
Citing unconfirmed reports, LBC News radio said seven people were killed in the blast at London's Aldgate underground station.
