SURVIVORS of the blasts that rocked London this morning have described the horror and confusion of the attacks.
Speaking after being checked out at hospital, Fiona Trueman, 26, was on a Piccadilly Line train a few minutes south of King's Cross.
Speaking outside Royal London Hospital Ms Trueman, who works in marketing for Sky News, said : "I had taken a Thameslink train from St Albans, where I live, to King's Cross, and changed to the Underground there.
"The train before was really busy and I thought of squeezing on to it, but didn't - and now I wish I had.
"It was about three minutes after we left King's Cross, when there was a massive bang and there was smoke and glass everywhere - I was standing near a window, and I've still got some in my hair.
"The lights went out, and with the smoke, we couldn't breathe, and we sort of cushioned each other during the impact because the compartment was so full.
"It felt like a dream, it was surreal. I was in the second carriage and I think the explosion was in the carriage in front of me, or maybe was even on the track, and the screaming from the front carriage was terrible.
"It was just horrendous, it was like a disaster movie, you can't imagine being somewhere like that, you just want to get out.
"I kept closing my eyes and thinking of outside.
"It was frightening because all the lights had gone out and we didn't hear anything from the driver, so we wondered how he was.
"Some people were very calm, and were telling everybody not to panic, and after a few minutes we started to get messages that we would be unloaded from the back of the train and walked to safety.
"It took about 15 minutes to walk along the track to King's Cross. Overall I feel lucky, and my thoughts go out to the families of anyone who has died."
At Liverpool Street Station in the City, the wounded were treated by medics as they lay on the concourse. The Hilton Metropole on the Edgware Road was used as a makeshift treatment centre.
The first incident, at 8.51am at Liverpool Street Station was initially reported as a power surge across the underground network. But within minutes reports started coming in of further explosions.
Marcin Stefanski was in the carriage next to the one which exploded. He said he saw bodies piled in the blast-strewn wreckage.
He said: "I just experienced a huge explosion and the glass hitting me in my back. People started screaming around me, there was glass everywhere, we couldn't breathe, there was no way to get off the train."
Mr Stefanski, a 24 year-old student who recently moved to the UK from Poland, was among many passengers covered in soot and coughed repeatedly as he relived his experience.
"I was in the front of the first carriage and there was a huge, massive hole in the carriage. As I went past the second carriage I could just see the bodies lying all over the floor."
Sarah Reid, 23, a student doing work experience, was on the carriage next door to the one which was struck by the explosion.
Speaking after the ordeal, having been led out down the track, near Liverpool Street station, she told how she saw a carriage ripped apart with the roof blown off.
She said: "I was on the train and there was a fire outside the carriage window and then there was a sudden jolt which shook us forward.
"The explosion was behind me. Some people took charge. We went out of the back of the carriage."
She said the explosion happened at 8.50am but she was not able to get off the carriage until 9.30am.
Miss Reid said an announcement came on but cut off after saying: "Hello". There was really hard banging from the carriage next door to us," she said. "That was where it happened."
Describing being led away from the scene, she said: "A carriage was split in two, all jagged, and without a roof, just open.
"I saw bodies, I think."
