On the morning of July 7th, did the alleged bombers flee from King’s Cross to Canary Wharf – where they were gunned down? Did that really happen? An episode of the intrepid Richard Hall’s Sky TV (June 3rd) “Rich Planet” examined new evidence confirming this, and the likely route they took  (See 10-15 minutes into his program). It used testimony of a young man who was on the Thameslink line going South from Luton to Gatwick via King’s Cross that morning, and who experienced a load of anti-terror police activity at Gatwick at 10 o’clock.

I’ve interviewed the young man and vouch for his testimony being authentic.

Let us ask, what happened to the ‘patsies’ when they arrived at King’s Cross, too late for their ‘terror-drill’ assignments because the Thameslink train had been delayed? Young men who are quite unfamilar with London.

Why, they surely bolted right back to the platform they had just come from. Let’s say the next train arriving was going South – they hop onto it, then decide to get off at London Bridge, so they can travel East. London Bridge is just a few stops on the Thameslink southbound line from King’s Cross.

It takes only five minutes on the Jubilee line from London Bridge to Canary Wharf. The point here is that Canary Wharf would have been a very easy place for them to end up at.

On Gatwick Thameslink platform

On the morning of July 7th, 2005, a young man (“Mr Y”) was travelling south on the Thameslink line, from Luton, and through London to Gatwick. He was escorting his lady friend to the airport and arrived by 8 am. On returning, he came back to the Thameslink platform around ten o’clock, and found quite a crowd waiting because there had been no trains for a while, maybe none for forty minutes. The two Thameslink rail lines North-South were on either side of the same platform. There was a small waiting-room on that platform which he entered. The screen indicating trains due in and out had gone dead.

 Mr Y has an impressive beard, and is somewhat African in appearance, belonging to the Rastafarian community. Perusing a poster in the waiting-room, his pocket-radio was plugged into his ears, and so he did not hear a commotion behind him. Other passengers were being  asked to leave the room, as ten armed police entered, bearing large ‘MP-5’ guns (the Heckler & Koch submachine gun, widely used for law-enforcement), wearing the black bullet-proof vests and white shirts. They were pointing their guns straight at him, and he feels he’s quite lucky to be still alive.

Then one police officer in charge calmed them down a bit, seeming almost as alarmed as was Mr Y, and handed Mr Y a bit of paper from the counter-terror police. Upon asking why he was being thus apprehended, he could not get any answer. Mr Y has no criminal record.

Clearly, they must have mistaken him for someone else, who they had (at very short notice) been instructed to get. Someone travelling on the Thameslink line.

Mr Y had often noticed security police going around in twos at Gatwick, but had never before seen so large a number together, all with guns.

Part II: Back in Luton

 The Thameslink train came at about 10.10 am taking him back to Luton. While on the train he saw people becoming very alarmed, from the news of bombs going off in London. When he arrived back in Luton, he was startled to find the station sealed off, the whole area around the station sealed off, and helicopters hovering around the station; this was happening over  July 7th – 8th.


The story, which we are here reconstructing, involves two of the Four alleged bombers – Lindsay Germain and Schezhad Tanweer – who were that morning at the King’s Cross concourse, having arrived too late for the terror-drill they had agreed to participate in. Crowds billow out from the tube once the bomb explodes, then the truth dawns upon them and they bolt back to the same platform they have just emerged from (being unfamiliar with London), and hop onto  a train – one going south towards Gatwick.  The ‘security’ police know they have done this, because of the mobile phones the lads  are carrying.

Once on the train, the young men decide they would rather not go towards Gatwick, but decide to change at London Bridge – where they grab an Eastbound Jubilee line train. That pulls in to Canary Wharf in three stops.

News of ‘terrorists’ travelling south on the Thameslink line must have caused the security police to take extreme measures at Gatwick: at 10 am the official line was about power surges and not until 11 am did the story turn into bombs going off, which implies the action of ‘terrorists.’ More important, not until July 11th four days later are the police supposed to be taking any special interest in Luton. I was informed that Luton Thameslink CCTV was handed over to the police on July 11th.
