Silence in London

Kevin Anderson | 12:14 UK time, Friday, 7 July 2006

Mourner in LondonLondon has just gone silent for two minutes as Londoners remember the bomb attacks a year ago today. The bombings left 52 people dead and scores injured. We have been speaking to Londoners this morning as they remember where they were.

My memories are uneventful. At the time, I lived in walking distance from our offices in West London. But shortly after I got into work, there were reports of a 'power surge' on the Tube. Anyone has been to London knows how often the Tube breaks down due to signaling failures, disabled trains or the ever ominous 'customer incident' so most people didn't take notice. But then it became clear, this wasn't going to be a normal day.

What are your memories? Where were you?
