2017 Parsons Green bomb injured 69, say British Transport Police

The number of people injured in the Parsons Green bomb attack has risen to 69, according to new police figures.

Previously, 51 victims were thought to have suffered cuts and burns when Ahmed Hassan’s homemade device partially detonated on a District line train at the Tube station on September 15, 2017.

Police said there was a delay to some of the victims being recorded, and that full numbers were established and confirmed over the course of the investigation.
