‘There was a human stampede’
We got on the train at Parsons Green, then I heard lots of screams and people saying ‘run, run’. We got out of the train and then there was a human stampede, down the stairs. There were people lying underneath getting crushed. I wedged myself in next to a railing, I put myself in the foetal position. I kept thinking, ‘I’ll be ok, I’ll be ok.’ There was a pregnant woman underneath me, and I was trying really hard not to crush her. I can’t think how many people were underneath me in the crush. The fire brigade was telling us to get back on the platform, but no-one was. There was a full Tube worth of people on the steps – hundreds of people. I saw a lady with water being poured over the face and hands who I think had been burnt in the explosion. The injuries from the stampede seemed the worst. I’m outside now, there are women crying and people sitting on the floor.”

‘There were mothers with babies’
“We heard a bang and then we were realised there were many distressed people leaving the station. We went to console them,” she tells the BBC.
“There were over 100 – women coming out without shoes, battered and bruised, and they’d left their handbags behind.
“There was talk of a fire. Two people came in to the shop with their clothes burnt off, who said they saw a fire coming towards them.
“There were mothers with babies, it was the school rush time. I’m really shocked – this is a quiet family-friendly area.”
Explosion was from an improvised explosive device
Met Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said the Parsons Green explosion was caused by the detonation of an improvised explosive device.
Mr Rowley said it was understood that “most” of the 18 injured and taken to hospital are suffering from “flash burns”.
