Silver Mercedes Used as Bomb!

LONDON, England (CNN) -- Police in London say they have deactivated a suspected bomb capable of creating huge casualties, raising renewed fears of a terrorist strike almost two years after the city was hit by deadly suicide bombers.

Eyewitnesses told Sky News that the alert was raised by door staff at a nearby nightclub after the silver Mercedes car was driven into trash cans at a time when the area would have been bustling with people.

The witness said the large silver saloon car was driven "erratically" before the minor crash. The driver was not stopped.

Security sources told CNN that the suspected bomb was "a relatively crude device" containing at least 200 liters, or around 50 gallons, of fuel in canisters.
