All the explosions were thought to have been in Finchley Road. One was outside a pizza restaurant, one 100 yards away outside a building society and another outside a nightclub. There was extensive damage to property. Scotland Yard said no warnings had been received.
James Mitchiner, 22, a law student, said: 'I was walking out of Finchley Road underground station and heard two blasts, and the third blast pushed me against the wall. Flame and smoke came shooting across the road, and all the glass shattered around me and fell on my feet. People ran off hysterical - it was so near.'Reuse content
