A man from Sutton has shared his experiences of being caught up in the Parsons Green tube terror attack.

Peter Crowley, a carpet seller, was interviewed live on Good Morning Britain by Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid yesterday, September 18.

“I was on the carriage about two metres away from the device,” Peter said.

“I heard a high pressure bang, a fireball's gone over my head. I lost a bit of my hair. I jumped off the train expecting the carriage to be engulfed in flames, it wasn’t.”

Immediately he phoned his wife, who was with his seven-year-old son, to let them know he was ok.

Mr Crowley was initially confused as to the cause of the explosion.

He said: “If I’m honest I didn’t know it was a bomb. I think I might have been in shock or denial but I thought it could have been a mechanical failure. My mind was saying it wasn’t a bomb.”

After the terror attack, Peter went straight to work where the situation became clearer.

He added: “When the reality was that there was something on that devise to kill me, that’s when it hit home, I shouldn’t be here.”

30 people were injured in the attack on Friday, September 15, after an explosive device in a bucket was left on the busy tube. Two men have since been arrested.
