Why Mellow Parsons Green was a Bomb Plot too Far

Suburbia: A passenger leaves Parson’s Green Underground station after it reopened following an explosion on a rush hour train on 15 September, 2017, in London

Parsons Green? When news filtered in of an ‘incident’ at a west London train station, you had to do a double take to be sure it was actually the same idyllic neighbourhood with the ample green park families seem to luxuriate in every time harried neighbouring Fulhamites rushed past . The hustle and bustle from the butt-end of the King’s Road is drowned out by the civilised mellow pace of life in this genteel part of town.

Well, it turned out to be southwest London, although it really was just a quirk of geography due to its close proximity to its west London neighbours Fulham and Chelsea.
