Fifth bomb discovered in London after July 21 attacks
Monday, July 25, 2005
A suspect package discovered in Little Wormwood Scrubs, west London is apparently a fifth bomb made to the same design as those used in the 21 July attacks. The device was subjected to controlled explosion by the police over the weekend and its discovery has led to speculation that a fifth bombing attempt may have been intended that day. The device was apparently a nail bomb.
Little Wormwood Scrubs is just north of Shepherd's Bush (scene of one of Thursday's bombing attempts) and White City (the location of the BBC's TV centre). It also borders on North Pole sidings, which are used by the Eurostar cross-channel train which travels through the Channel Tunnel.
