‘A re­ally hot, in­tense fire­ball above my head’

Scottish Daily Mail - - TERROR ON THE TUBE -

ONE vic­tim took shock­ing pho­tos of his charred head and posted them on­line.

Peter Crow­ley, 36, of Sut­ton, said: ‘I heard a large bang. It was a re­ally hot, in­tense fire­ball above my head.

‘I’ve got charred hair and burn marks to the top of my head, but there were a lot of peo­ple a lot worse than me.

‘There was a gentle­man who was wear­ing a puffer jacket that had com­pletely melted. He was phys­i­cally shak­ing and he needed to be as­sisted. He had burns across his face as well.

‘I would say roughly about 20 who had phys­i­cal in­juries. Ev­ery­one just ran off the train. It was like noth­ing I have ever seen be­fore – sheer panic.’

Mr Crow­ley, who posted pho­tos of his head on Twit­ter, told LBC Ra­dio: ‘My ini­tial thought was that the whole train would blow up. It was a ter­ri­fy­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. I am lucky I got away with just a bit of charred hair.’
