Staff at Tavistock Square-based Top 50 firm thought bomb was 'lightning'

Tavistock Square-based Morley & Scott has been evacuated after the bus
explosion in the square.

Staff at the firm initially thought the first explosion, at around a quarter
to 10, was lightning or thunder.

Tavistock Square was the location of the first reported explosions on buses
in London, after other attacks on the tube earlier.

The building Morley & Scott occupied has been evacuated, with another
explosion reportedly taking place whilst staff were outside.

Nobody in the building was reported to have been hurt – the building is only
partly occupied by the Top 50 firm.
