London Mayor Sadiq Khan has led tributes to those killed in the 7/7 London bombings on the 11th anniversary of the terror attacks. Fifty-two people were killed and more than 700 injured in a series of explosions which tore through London’s transport system on 7 July 2005.

Suicide bombers Mohammad Sidique Khan, 30, Shehzad Tanweer, 22, Habib Hussain, 18, and Germaine Lindsay, 19, were all killed when their rucksacks packed with explosives were detonated on London’s tube and bus networks.

Attending a ceremony at the 7/7 memorial in Hyde Park, Khan left a wreath bearing the message: “11 years on, we must never forget those who lost their lives on 7/7 and the unity Londoners showed in the face of attack.”
