Mick Whelan, general secretary of ASLEF, the train drivers’ union, today paused to reflect on the tragic events of 16 years ago when, on 7 July 2005, 52 people were killed and more than 700 injured in a series of co-ordinated terrorist attacks on public transport services in the capital.

 

He said: ‘We must never forget those who were impacted by the loss and tragedy of 7/7 and we must always be vigilant to ensure that it does not happen again. As we remember the victims, and their families, we all give thanks to the staff and emergency services who not only helped at the time but prevented much greater loss of life and hurt.’
