Bromley-By-Bow UXB To Be Exploded Today

Hammersmith and City (Whitechapel to Barking) and District line (Whitechapel to Plaistow) trains are again suspended this morning while the Royal Engineers' bomb experts detonate and defuse the ticking World War II UXB.

This is all happening on Diamond Geezer's doorstep and he points out that if only the Big Brother house was still filmed in Bromley-by-Bow the whole telly monstrosity would be shut down by now.

Check Transport for London for travel updates. It's not expected the lines will reopen until at least late afternoon.
