    Facts so far is a taxi burst into flames and the passenger died.

    If I say 73 died on a similarly blazing train in 2019, could be a bomb ye?

    But nah, people were cooking with a gas stove and it blew up: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/...ve-starts-fire-on-train-in-pakistan-5vp2q2sdm

    Seems likely a botched attempt, despicable act as ever of course.

    Looks like the road outside my missus's school in Kenny has been closed off by police in relation to it. Guess I'll find out all the gossip tomorrow.

    Looks like someone mongfingered cooking up a batch of PETN and made an incendiary instead.

    Lad, shouldn't you at least wait until she's in sixth form before calling her your girlfriend? :p

    Also, what kind of idiot books a taxi to go and blow somewhere up? However, I'd like to know which taxi company they used as if they'd used Delta, they'd still be sat at home waiting.

    By all accounts it was Delta and the driver locked him in. Thats doing "the rounds" anyway.

    Just seen the same on FB. Sounds like the guy isn't in a good way. :(

    If that's true he might have prevented a lot of injured/deaths.

    Seems like a weird place to try to detonate a bomb though, in the middle of an empty car park? Normal course of action is to drive into the entrance. Could always be a premature "detonation" I suppose.

    Or the driver murdered the passenger by locking them in a burning car.

    Again, reiterating that I don't know what's gone on any more than you lot do... But that's not the middle of the car park. It's right adjacent to the main entrance/foyer. The images are deceptive. The whole thing is basically a roundabout with a door at one side of it, so where the taxi's parked is right at the front door.
