"Are You Alright, Mate?"

What would you say to a suicide bomber?

A TUBE passenger last night told how he watched a suicide bomber bungle his intended atrocity.

Abisha Moyo was on his way to Hammersmith, west London, when he heard what sounded like a gunshot.

The 28-year-old said: “I turned round and there was a man lying with his arms outstretched on top of a rucksack face up. Some girls started screaming. The emergency cable was pulled and everyone starting moving away from him.”

“I went up to him and said: ‘Are you all right, mate?’ But he just ignored me and kept his eyes shut.

“He looked about 19 or 20. He was of mixed race, clean shaven and he was dressed smartly in jeans, a navy blue T-shirt and a baseball cap.

“The rucksack was ripped at the bottom with some kind of muslin showing and some gooey lard coming out of it.

“I could see what looked like a pressurised canister or tube and there was a strong smell of vinegar.”
