Belinda Seabrook, Russell Square

I was on the bus in front and heard an incredible bang, I turned round and half the double-decker bus was in the air.
It was a massive explosion and there were papers and half a bus flying through the air.
There must be a lot of people dead as all the buses were packed, they had been turning people away from the tube stops.
We were about 20 metres away, that was all.

Geraldine Fourmon, Tavistock Square

There was a big bang. After the smoke went away I realised there was a double decker bus exploded. People were running towards me screaming and crying.
I saw at least five people jump from the top deck of the bus. Half of it was blown away. They were jumping onto the street to escape.
It was such a big explosion and the bus was packed because the tube was closed. People were covered with dust and debris. I didn't see any blood.

7th July 2005; London Bombings - Impacts
10:01 PM

Impacts:

Political impact:

Although there were security alerts at many locations, no other terrorist incidents occurred outside central London. However, the security across the UK was raised to the highest alert level. Many other countries such as Canada, United States, France and Germany raised their own terror alert status. For a period of time, US commanders ordered troops based in the UK to avoid London. Police sniper units were reported to be tailing as many as 12 Al Qaeda suspects in Britain. The covert armed teams were also ordered to shoot and kill a terror suspect, which might be carrying a bomb, if he refused to surrender.

Economic impact
There were limited reactions to the attack in the world economy as measured by financial market and exchange rate activity. The pound fell 0.89 cents to a 19-month low against the U.S. dollar. The markets picked up again on 8 July as it became clear that the damage caused by the bombings was not as great as initially thought. By close of trading the market had fully recovered to above its level at start of trading on 7 July.

Psychological Impacts
The terrorist attacks on the three tube trains and double decker bus in London, England, may leave an emotional residue that can arise at any time among the survivors. These people suffer from shocking flashbacks, nightmares, and personality changes which leave the sufferer struggling to lead a 'normal' life. For those involved, either directly or as witnesses, one of the main problems they will face in the future will be their memories, This can induce a serious and common health condition known as PTSD, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

31st March 2009: IRA dissidents burn cars, block Belfast roads
2:26 AM

In Dublin, suspected IRA and their supporters hijacked cars on Monday in the Catholic areas of Northern Ireland in an attempt to block roads and threaten police stations.
The Police Service of Northern Ireland said that it was receiving a wave of reports of vehicles being hijacked by masked gunmen in several parts of Belfast.
Some vehicles were being set on fire in roads to disrupt traffic at the rush hour, while others were abandoned near 4 Belfast police stations and on Northern Ireland's major motorway near Lurgan.
Police stated that they were treating all the abandoned vehicles as potential car bombs, even though this was most unlikely. They urged motorists to avoid Kilwilkie and parts of Catholic west Belfast entirely. One of the hijacked cars was abandoned on the M1 motorway, which connects Belfast to Dublin. Authorities shut part ir the motorway as a precaution. 
One abandoned vehicle- which police said did not contain a bomb- was left near the Stormont Parliamentary Building, the center of Northern Ireland's power-sharing government between the British Protestant majority and Irish Catholic minority. 
"The criminal terrorists responsible for the series of bomb scares and hijackings are beneath contempt and have no support whatsoever in the community," Robinson said.
The hijackings and security alerts also coincided with a widespread breakdown of Belfast's traffic lights system. Police in a statement called that an "unfortunate coincidence".
