Police begin clean-up at bus bomb site10/07/2005 - 17:37:03
Police today began to remove vehicles from around the wreckage of a bus blown up in Thursday’s attacks.
Thirteen people were killed when a blast tore through the Number 30 bus at the Junction of Woburn Square and Tavistock Place, in central London.
Since then the area has been sealed off and hidden behind plastic sheeting as forensics officers comb the streets and nearby buildings.
This afternoon, recovery lorries began to remove cars and vans which had been near the bus when it exploded.
A white van and a silver saloon car were seen being taken away.
The roof of the bus, which was blown off in the blast, was taken away for further forensic examination on Friday.
A spokeswoman for Scotland Yard said there were no plans to remove the rest of the bus today.
The bus was travelling from Hackney Wick to Marble Arch and had been diverted because of the disruption at King’s Cross.
