July 7 bombings remembered

Transport for London (TfL) has marked the tenth anniversary of the London bombings with a minute’s silence across the London Underground and wider TfL network today (July 7).

Fifty-two people were killed and many injured when explosives were detonated on three Tube trains and one bus.

Wreaths were laid in Hyde Park by members of the emergency services and by the Prime Minister and the Mayor of London. The minute’s silence was also observed at a service in St Paul’s Cathedral.

Managing Director of London Underground and Rail Mike Brown said: “My thoughts are with the victims, families and survivors on this difficult day. What happened ten years ago will never be forgotten, and neither will the valiant actions of our staff, the emergency services and members of the public who worked so compassionately to help those in need.

“The people of London showed extraordinary courage, and their support and patience as we worked to return the transport network to normal was invaluable.”
