Blair to return to London…

It seems Tony Blair is to leave the other leaders at the G8 meeting in Gleneagles to return to London. Of the 1000 Metropolitan officers on duty in Scotland several specialists may be picked out to return to the capital. Blair is expected to arrive back in Scotland this evening.

Update: BBC saying it looks like it could be Al Queda. Nothing definate though. As Pete says, keep your eye on Neil McIntosh for fresh news and the extraordinary wikipedia. And Blair’s statement.

Update to the update: BBC have just repeated Ansa’s report that 50 have died without confirming it. A previously unknown group has claimed it for Al Queda.
