Four explosions ripped across central London on Thursday, killing more than 50 people and injuring 700.
In a co-ordinated attack, there were blasts on three Underground trains and a bus, as the morning’s rush hour drew to a close.
The capital’s public transport system was halted and a high-level emergency procedure swung into action. All hospitals were full by mid-morning.
The first explosion happened on an Underground train just outside the busy Liverpool Street station.
Further blasts hit a train heading from Russell Square station to King’s Cross and another at Edgware Road station.
The final explosion was on a double-decker bus.

We can only hope that the number of dead does not increase.
