Users of the notorious message board 4chan have made claims that an anonymous message posted to the site ‘predicted’ the Westminster attacks.
Users claim that a cryptic message shared to the site’s /pol community at 3pm on Tuesday, long before the attacks, contained images of firearms – and the GPS coordinates of Westminster Bridge.
But 4chan users are known to be conspiracy theory fans – and users have previously claimed that messages on the site foreshadowed school shootings and other atrocities.
The user – who posted using a guest account – posted Morse code dots and dashes which translated to a website link.
The link points to a GPS location near Big Ben – and users say that the message could not have been modified after the fact, as it was posted by a guest.
The original post can still be seen here.
The owner of 4Chan, Hiroyuki Nishimura told Gizmodo, ‘I understand the situation. We are ready to respond for law enforcement agency.’
