The metal was pushed upwards as if the bomb was underneath the train

from a thread on LF

Quote: ..An alternative and more plausible explanation for what happened in London on July 7 is obvious: unmanned timer-detonated bombs were planted in the trailer cars of train numbers 204, 216 and 331 some time earlier and by the time the bombs were detonated, the perpetrators had long since gone. i.e., there were no suicide bombers, just as there were none at Mike's Place, the Tel Aviv cafe, the site of the last supposed suicide bombing that was purportedly carried out by British Islamists.

Conjecture of course, but perhaps the bombs were planted when the trains were in the Hammersmith, Cockfosters and Northfields overnight Tube service depots , which serve the Circle and Piccadilly lines on which the blasts took place.

That theory is a re-dux of the late Joe Vialls' supposition for what he says actually happened in the Madrid bombings of March 3, 2004 - where also there were no suicide bombers - the Madrid train bombs were planted under the carriages when the trains were out of service.

Today, the inimitable Mike Rivero of has unearthed a very interesting eye-witness account of the London Tube bombings of July 7. Here is the pertinent observation that the witness recollected to his local newspaper, the Cambridge Evening News :

Quote: 32-year-old..Bruce Lait..who teaches dance in Cambridge..told the paper he and his partner 23-year-old Crystal Main..made their way out [of the bombed carriage], a policeman pointed out where the bomb had been. "The policeman said 'mind that hole, that's where the bomb was'. The metal was pushed upwards as if the bomb was underneath the train . They seem to think the bomb was left in a bag, but I don't remember anybody being where the bomb was, or any bag," he said.

There we have prima facie evidence that there were no suicide bombers at all. The bomb on Circle Line train number 204 was pre-planted beneath the carriage, probably when the train was out of service in the Hammersmith overnight Tube service depot.
