A letter bomb exploded Monday in the mailroom of a London company that controls the capital's traffic congestion charge, slightly injuring a female worker, police said. The padded envelope exploded at an office belonging to Capita Group PLC, which administers the 8 pound (US$16, €12) daily fee meant to cut down on traffic in central London and collects television licensing fees. It also developed the database for the Criminal Records Bureau, combining data from 43 British police departments, and has significant contracts with government departments. "We can confirm that there has been a small explosion at our Victoria Street office this morning," said a Capita spokeswoman, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with department policy.
