What happened to the Stockwell to Vauxhall "smoking bag" incident before the shooting at Stockwell

What happened to the Stockwell to Vauxhall "smoking bag" incident around 9.30am before the shooting at Stockwell at around 10am?

Does this mean that there has been another attempted bombing attack, with the suspect then being chased and shot ?

It is politically incorrect illiberals like michael winner who are at fault for the terrorist attacks in London today. They have been telling us to ally with saudi arabia, and fund people like bin laden to overthrow libya for years, and now we are getting the rewards for that. It was bourbon royalists like him who created the first terrorist attacks in 1801 when a royalist conservative like him and the suicide bombers, placed a bomb by napoleon in an attempt to assainate him, killing loads and so they could create a christian caliphate, where slavery and serfdom would be reimposed on france, and famines, he supported bin laden and supported him in his war against liberalism, and we the liberal jews and christians and muslims of britain are suffering his Islamo-Christain fanatisism, in supporting bin laden, in the 1980s. Why don't right wing maniacs like him apologise for supportinmg bin laden and saudi arabia, and bringing satan to London, the streets that should be as peaceful as paris. Instead of funding terrorists as the nazis want, we should be shooting the, i know micheal winner will not like that as he thinks they could be used to help monarchy and religon aropund teh world, and attaempts to crush socialism, and liberalism, but he and reagan should paologise, or we will have some other war exactly like this in future, looked who he and bush supported in teh recent pakistan election, not socialists, but islamic fundamentalists. as they ate liberals, just like him, when terrorists and killing, he is hating, gays, gypsies, blacks, and middle, and working class people,

Napoleon, Ronald Reagan and Michael Winner ??

We obviously missed this particular conspiracy theory in our list of potential ones which might be linked to the London bombings:

Unlike the other two comments and keeping in line with original question, maybe there was another attempted bomb attack.

I was on the tube at Vauxhall which was the subject of panic and chaos (actually at about 09.15).

As we pulled into Vauxhall on the Victoria Line Northbound, the doors opened and a few seconds later there was panic coming from maybe one or two carriages away from myself with several shouts of 'Go' and some screaming. I hit the floor of the tube waiting for an imminient explosion which never came. Around 20 seconds later I decided to run for it. There was a large panic, scores of people running, shouting and screaming along the packed platform.

I saw one person fall on the platform and get slightly trampled on (as I was, when on the floor of the tube) before they were being helped to their feet.

After I got out of the station, Police arrived within maybe 2 or 3 minutes, along with a police helicopter.

Since then, I have found no news media coverage of this incident except for some eye-witness accounts on BBC's website (including a couple of different ones stating they had seen a smoking bag).

All focus everywhere else has been on the shooting incident at Stockwell, which was entirely unrelated.

Although I understand that the Stockwell incident may be taken priority in the news, the lack of information about the incident at Vauxhall seems very strange to me and, I'm sure, the few hundred others who were scared witless at 09.15.

Hints and Tips for Whistleblowers

There are many good people trapped in the bureaucracies which run London. If you are thinking about blowing the whistle on shadowy and powerful people in Government or commerce, and their dubious policies then you need be very careful these days. The mainstream media and bloggers also need to take simple precautions to help preserve the anonymity of their sources e.g.
