Remembering 7/7

From the BBC website:

Nation prepares to remember 7/7

"The UK is preparing to mark the first anniversary of the London bombings that claimed 52 lives and injured hundreds."

"At midday, a two-minute silence will be observed across the country, including Wimbledon and other events. The bells of St Paul's Cathedral will toll for those who died, at the times of the bombings and after the silence . . .

The commemoration comes as the chief constable of one of the forces investigating the bombings on three London Underground trains and a bus says he believes another 7 July-style attack in the UK is "very possible" . . .

From 0800 BST until 1600 BST the public will be invited to lay a purple carnation within a giant floral mosaic in Queen Mary's Gardens, Regent's Park. The flowers will be provided . . .

As well as at the end of the two-minute silence at midday, the St Paul's bells will toll at 0850 BST. That will mark a year exactly since bombs went off on underground trains just outside Liverpool Street and Edgware Road stations, and on another travelling between King's Cross and Russell Square.

They will also toll at 0947 BST to mark the fourth blast that tore through a number 30 double-decker bus at the junction of Tavistock Square and Upper Woburn place . . . "
