July 7, 2005 Remembered
Commuters and survivors stood shoulder to shoulder with the families of victims today to mark the third anniversary of the London bombings.
Hundreds of people crowded into King's Cross station to remember the 52 innocent people who were killed when four blasts ripped through London's public transport network.
Hundreds of people crowded into King's Cross station to remember the 52 people killed in the 7/7 suicide bombings in London three years ago.
Minister for London Tessa Jowell and London Mayor Boris Johnson laid flowers there at 0850 BST, the time the first three bombs exploded.
Survivors and friends also attended low-key services at the sites of the other three blasts.
Four bombers detonated bombs on three Tube trains and a bus in 2005.
The four bombers set off on their terror campaign from King's Cross, before detonating devices near Russell Square, Aldgate and Edgware Road tube stations and on a bus in Tavistock Square.
