I highly doubt ISIS would have bombed a Londis on Hinckley Road in Leicester, idiots! Wait for a police statement with the actual cause.
Awful racists are saying that because my beloved home town #Leicester has had an explosion it is somehow linked to terrorism because of our proud multicultural community.— Simon Alborn #FBPE 🇪🇺 (@simonalborn) February 25, 2018
You don't know anything
Don't make what could be a tragedy worse by using it to whip up hate.
But nothing is confirmed yet.
