    Any speculation on the cause? I know it's just breaking but still.

    Lots of blood all over the sidewalk. Looks like lots injured. Horrible.

    I'd wait before jumping to any conclusions. Looks nasty.

    Photo of explosion happening. Not confirmed real yet.

    Talk on Sky is of the bomb possibly being in a dustbin.

    Hope everyone is OK, first photos are pretty gristly

    My money is on a suicide bomber after seeing the footage on CNN.

    @TheSaint Boston Police have told citizens to stay away from trash cans so possibly the explosive devices were left in those.

    Rumours that the two bombs were in rubbish bins... and more rumours of a third rubbish bin with a bomb inside...

    Another website saying the explosions have come from the ground floor of a hotel, there was a temporary store setup on the ground floor for the marathon.

    People saying text messages are more likely to get there faster, no point trying to make calls

    You have to admire the marshalls running straight to help people with no concern for their own safety.

    Seen some pictures and does look like it happened from inside one of the buildings because the benches were on the floor facing away from the buildings.

    Hopefully it's something accidental like a gas explosion and nothing sinister.
