    He said details are still coming in, and the seriousness of the blast is not yet known.

    Sounds worryingly familiar

    nothing in the news:?



    I haven't heard anything either :?

    thanks for the link :).

    First Tiger Tiger in London has a bomb outside it... now an explosion in Giraffe! I think Animals hate us...

    Just read it on Reuters, too close for comfort that. Aparently it was a nailbomb.

    Good grief, they will get us one day, it's all a matter of time. Makes me feel slightly guilty for bringing a child into this messed up world....

    They = Mad people

    Before you go on about race.

    Princess Hay is a new shopping centre development in Exeter, open for less than a year I think. Lots of shops in a compacted area. Such a studenty area, with the University and Colleges, I really hope all involved aren't seriously injured and that it was a fault somewhere, not a bomb.

    Yes it has been open for less than a year.
    Nothing has been confirmed yet, only hearsay, but there has been definitely 1 bomb go off and based on other websites, another 2/3 suspected. The whole of our High Street has been cordoned off and evacuated.

    Knowing Exeter...

    I would say it was some dodgy gas fitting in the cafe...

    I am fine thank you.
    Its so strange though as the whole of town has been cordoned off but our office hasnt. We are literally a couple of strides from the High Street. So quiet it is eerie.

    Speculating

    They in as who bloody ever is a freak enough to do ***** like this! Don't assume i was talking about race after spending time in Afghan, Iraq and Kosovo i know it dont tend to generally come down to "race" alone.
    Hope all and everyone is ok.

    Some speculation.....
    *** has been evacuated from Lloyds Private Banking at the top of Southernhay, she told me she managed to stop and speak to a reporter who has said they believe it to have been an Animal rights Protestor, who went into the Loo’s in the Giraffe Restaurant too assemble the bomb but whist doing so, it went off, they believe the bomb was intended for Boots the Chemist (Possibly as they are a large Pharmaceutical Company). This has not been confirmed as yet but they are sure this was the case***

    An animal rights protestor, seems kind of ironic it accidentally went off in Giraffe. I still hope it was a fault, though if it was intentional, it is unforgivable.

    that'll teach em not to beat cambridge united at wembley!

    I wonder if he recommends the chilli bean burittos?

    One in custody with minor wounds

    LOL.

    Any updates?

    Just see this on Sky news

    Sky news dont seem particularly concerned. Said that there was a small blast and 1 person has been injured and is being held in custody. Local buildings have been evacuated as a precaution

    One white bloke in his twenties in custody, converted to Islam.

    Yep, BBC is implying terrorism and saying the 'vulnerable' chap from Plymouth was 'preyed upon' and converted to extremist Islam. You hardly expect this type of act in little old Exeter.

    I live in Plymouth...I hope they don't do it here next time.
