Four bombs targeting civilians during rush hour went off, on underground trains at Liverpool Street, Edgware Road, and near Russell Square, and on a bus in Tavistock Square.

Fifty-two innocent bystanders travelling around the city were killed, and more than 770 were injured.

Across the country, people were contacting loved ones to make sure they were safe, and desperately trying to understand what had happened despite the mixed information being reported.

People followed the events as they unfolded on television, while travelling to work on the tube, or while at school being reassured by teachers that everything would be OK.
