Police are today hunting for the ‘bucket bomber’ who tried to blow up a rush hour Tube train amid claims the terror suspect is armed with knives and may have left other devices.

The crude IED could have killed dozens but failed to properly detonate and sent a ‘wall of fire’ through the carriage injuring at least 22 people including a ten-year-old boy.

Terrified passengers were seen covered in blood with scorched hands, legs, faces and hair – others suffered crush injuries during a ‘human stampede’ as they ‘ran for their lives’ at Parsons Green station in west London at 8.20am.

Photographs show what experts believe is a ‘pretty unsophisticated’ bomb in a flaming white bucket inside a Lidl freezer bag with Christmas lights protruding out of the top – a type of fuse encouraged by ISIS in its online manuals and magazines.

Security sources have said the IED had a timer, indicating the bucket bomber left in on the train and fled before it exploded with police spotters watching back CCTV on the train and at Tube stations.

An officer at the scene told MailOnline: ‘We believe there is a second bomb – there is a man with knives on the loose.’

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan urged Londoners to show vigilance and told LBC: ‘There is a manhunt under way as we speak.’

Witnesses to the explosion said there was a loud ‘bang’, a flash and then a ball of flame engulfed surrounding passengers on the ‘packed’ District Line train.

Luke Warsmey said: ‘The explosion was like a large match going off at the end of the carriage. People just started sprinting. It was every man for himself when that happened. The burn victims had severe leg injuries.

‘It was a very busy commuter train, young and old, school children going to their schools. I saw was nannies trying to look for kids, because of the rush of people just taking five and six year olds away from them and they were trying to look for them.’
