A bomb which exploded in Exeter was a mix of chemicals and nails, senior police sources have said.

Police are waiting to question Nicky Reilly, 22, who is under guard being treated for severe facial lacerations following Thursday's explosion.

They are said to have CCTV film showing the suspect boarding a bus from his Plymouth home carrying a rucksack.

A bomb disposal team arrived at Mr Reilly's home in the Stonehouse area of Plymouth at lunchtime on Friday.

Police said Mr Reilly boarded a double-decker Stagecoach bus number X38 in Bretonside bus station, Plymouth, and have appealed to passengers on the service to contact them.

"We know that between 1026 and 1040 yesterday morning 54 other passengers boarded the same bus and travelled to the main bus station in Paris Street, Exeter, arriving just after midday," a spokesman said.

Police say it may be some time before Nicky Reilly can be questioned​


The bus made two scheduled stops at a garden centre on the A38 and at Ashburton en route to Exeter.

Mr Reilly is described as white, 6ft 1in with short dark hair. He is heavily built, weighing approximately 18st (114kg). He was wearing blue jeans and a blue polo shirt with horizontal red and white stripes.

Neighbours of Mr Reilly have told BBC News he converted to Islam changed his name to Mohammed Rasheed.

A team of about 20 specialists from Scotland Yard's Counter Terrorism branch SO15, has been brought in to help Devon and Cornwall Police with the investigation.

It includes forensic officers, intelligence experts and detectives.

After the arrest, police evacuated properties 40 miles away in the Stonehouse area of Plymouth.

Officers from the Tactical Aid Group then searched a flat in King Street, Plymouth, where Reilly lived with his mother and brother.

Mr Reilly, who police have said has a history of mental illness, was injured when a device detonated in the Giraffe restaurant at Princesshay shopping centre in Exeter at 1250 BST.

CCTV footage taken from a nearby camera appears to show him emerging from the cafe with blood pouring down his face.

A bomb disposal team has arrived at the Reilly family's Plymouth flat​


Detectives said he suffered serious, but not life-threatening, injuries, and was unlikely to be well enough to be properly questioned until next week.

No-one else was hurt in the explosion at the restaurant, which was busy at the time and is popular with families.

Another device was found outside the premises and was made safe by bomb disposal experts.

The explosion led to an evacuation of nearby buildings and the city's bus station about half a mile away.

People were allowed to return at about 1900 BST.

'Big friendly giant'

In a statement, Deputy Chief Constable Tony Melville said: "Our investigation so far indicates Reilly, who had a history of mental illness, had adopted the Islamic faith.

"We believe, despite his weak and vulnerable illness, he was preyed upon, radicalised and taken advantage of."

Syed Rahman, chairman of a Plymouth Islamic centre where Reilly once worshipped, told BBC News that those with a fundamentalist agenda were not welcome.

He said: "We do not have and have never supported or condoned any radical or extremist behaviour.

"This Islamic centre is only used for communal prayers."

Omar Siddiqui, friend of Mr Reilly's and the president of the Islamic Society at the University of Plymouth, said he was stunned and amazed at what has been alleged.

Mr Siddiqui said Plymouth's 3,500-strong Muslim community were moderate and he knew of no groups which would preach hate.

People living near the Mr Reilly's Plymouth home, where he has lived with his family for many years, have described him as a "big friendly giant" who was "obsessed" with computers.

The edge.
string the c*nt up, no matter what his colour, belief or mental condition, otherwise we will see more and more of this. the authorities MUST get tough on this crap, and take an absolute zore tolerance to anything like it.

if he is that mentally unstable then he will have support and social workers, as well as family, who should have picked up on this, someone doesnt just change from a 'gentle giant' to mohammed the suicide bomber overnight

use the full extent of the law to ensure this guy, and those responsible for 'recruiting' him never see the light of day, at least not in this country anyway, ever again

fcuking scum, all of them

People outside of London usually don't worry about bomb threats, this has added a new dimension to people who thought they were safe living in rural areas.

Recently we heard of muslims using people with downs syndrome as suicide bombers and now they seem to be recruiting vulnerable people with learning difficulties to do the same job. It speaks of people who are desperate to recruit anyone, I just wonder what or who is next.

With our massive surveillance culture and over bloated defence budgets, how comes these people are slipping through the net? It seems if you have an English name you've done enough to confuse the already very confused police force.

Any mosque that has had dealings with these types of criminals needs to be closed down as they seem to be the meeting places for these bombers. Places such as Finsbury Park are a haven for anti British muslims. The British people are too soft to even consider such drastic actions, we'd rather wait until a nuclear bomb goes off before we decide that this is for real and that all of our lives are at risk. Right now the muslim community keeps apologising but the bombs keep going off. This is one of the ways to get the good muslims (there are plenty of them too) to start fingering the bad ones.

I agree with Digidude completely...

I live in Exeter, and I have to say, when you think about this shit, it's quite scary, my wife and kid could easily have been in that location at time he tried to set it off. And if he'd have been successful, I would have lost some friends. You don't really expect this bollox down here, London, Manchester, Birmingham etc yes, in the big, busy populated cities, but not in sleepy ol' Devon.

Stupid fooker didn't even have the sense to blow up the one place in Devon that actually needs destroying...! ;) (The very city he and his cronies lives!)

Scary, and I shall be much more vigilant from now on, and I have told the Missus to do the same, and not just gaze aimlessly like she normally does...!

I've seen elsewhere, that the thing about this problem is, We (English etc) place more importance on life/living. They (Islamic extremists) see more importance in death, so it means sod all to them if they kick the bucket. I'm not sure how accurate that is, but I guess it could have some truth to it.

Im sorry, you are talking about having a guy killed?

All I know about this case is that he set off a chemical bomb in Exeter, he apparently is mentally ill and that he appears to be recruited and used by a terrorist group.

Shouldnt everyone wait for the facts to come out first before getting the lynch mob together? He snt going to walk free, no bomber ever would.

Simply saying any terrorist suspect should be executed in order to provide a detterent wouldnt stop anyone from having a go. After all - they are trying to be suicide bombers...

For gods sake - what a ridiculous thing to even say.

So I take it then you know absolutely everything about this incident then? You know what they guy was doing and why he was doing it? You know for certain he is a terrorist, and not some mentally ill guy doing "what the voices in his head" told him to do?

I had no idea you had such a high degree of knowledge about this guy and his crimes. I would assume that you only know the same amount as me - information that is freely available from here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/devon/7418317.stm - unless of course your one of the journalists investigating this crime? Or perhaps one of the invetigators?

The point I obviously failed to make here, as it hasnt been at apparent to you is this: What is the point in executing suicide bombers when they are trying to blow themselves up? Please let me know if that isnt clear enough for you.

Doesnt anyone else think time could be better spent detecting these wasters before they try to kill us and themselves?

Well I'd like to think that the police would pop a few caps off into the bastards brains and claim they 'slipped'.

What we need is some self policing, all those against this shit should raid places where known animals collect and wipe them out.

The Police/Goverment aren't going to do it for us.

Let's move before they raise the parking rate.
My $0.02...

FACT
The guy was trying to set of an explosive device in a restaurant frequented by woman & children.

FACT
He travelled to his intended destination by using public transport.

FACT
There were ample opportunities of this device going off between the place it was constructed & the intended detonation location.

I do not care one iota of the mental state of this "gentle giant".
He should be put down the the low-life scum he is.

OR...
At the very least have the salted peanut treatment inflicted upon him!!!
