A memorial honouring the 13 victims of the 7/7 London bombings has been unveiled.

The memorial honours the 13 victims who died when the number 30 bus was targeted, and recognises the effort of the emergency services and members of the public who helped in the aftermath.

The memorial was unveiled in front of an audience which included the families and friends of the deceased, members of the emergency services and civilians who helped.

Philip Nelson, Chair of the 7/7 Tavistock Square Memorial Trust, said: “It is hoped the memorial will be a focal point for the survivors, the families and also London’s finest, our emergency services, who did what they had to do on that day. Above all it will send a powerful message that 7/7, and those who lost their lives, will never be forgotten.”
