    they'll limit the networks in the immediate area for now. terrible news. is it bad that I felt quite sad as well for the people who got so near to the finish line and then ended up getting pulled off over to the side?

    In the video of the first explosion on sky, you can see the 2nd explosion go off in the far background. The presenter hasn't noticed it yet.

    Sadly not likely.

    Seems the Newtown families were in a VIP stand nearby. Which doesn't strike me as a coincidence.

    Awful stuff.

    Does look like it's something sinister. Boston police have found secondary devices in other trash cans.

    I wouldn't make any firm conclusions just yet - they'll be finding 'devices' all over the place at the moment

    Jesus, imagine what they are potentially going through - the indescribably terrible atrocity of the Newtown Shootings and then having to witness this. For their sake I hope this was just an accident.

    I'm not hearing anything about other devices... or that people have died. Right now CNN is saying 19 injured.

    Definitely 2 devices just seen the video again on sky, long shot of the street you can see the 2nd explosion, still none of the presenters mentioning it.

    I'm hearing nothing of deaths, but there are some serious injuries (severed limbs) according to the american news agencies.

    BBC are saying Boston authorities are going to carry out a controlled explosion.

    Sky show footage of the explosion and talk about it, but if you look on the same side of the road 200 metre's away from the finish line there's a second explosion, they go on to say there was another across the road.

    BBC are usually the slowest to report, just because they tend to stick to confirmed stories on the newswires or from their local reporters, whereas other stations will happily go with Twitter, etc.

    Apparently the bomb contained ball bearings to try and maximise injuries.

    don't know how to say this, but 2 is a pretty low fatality rate for a lot of people in a confined area. saw some tweets on the reuters thing saying they were 10ft away from the explosion - that's a small bomb, if it was a bomb
