7/7: ONE DAY IN LONDON

The day after London won the Olympic bid, terrorists attacked the public transport network killing 52 people and injuring over 700. Seven years later, as the eyes of the world were once again focused on the capital, 7/7: One Day in London gathers the testimony of over fifty people directly affected by the bombings, exploring the long-lasting effects as they reflect on their experiences and how their lives have changed.

This is an ambitious retelling of the story of what happened on that day, with contributions from commuters, emergency service workers, TFL staff and families of victims. With enormous compassion for one another, ordinary people tell extraordinary stories of the day when they were thrown together, and their struggle to cope in the wake of the blasts that shook London.
