In pictures: BBC bomb blast
A large explosion which went off in a taxi parked outside Television Centre in Wood Lane on Sunday morning was caught on camera by a BBC crew.

The blast happened following a coded warning which was sent to a London hospital and a charity, and police were just beginning to attempt a controlled explosion.
