Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton and Wallington, and Muhammad Sadiq, Mayor of Sutton, attended a ceremony at St. Paul’s Cathedral on July 7 to remember the victims of the 7/7 London Bombings. The ceremony marked the tenth anniversary of the bombings, which killed fifty-two people.
Families of the victims attended and participated in the ceremony, which included a minute of silence to remember the dead. Survivors of the attacks, including one woman who was just fourteen years old during the bombings, also took part.
Tom, who was in London at the Sri Lankan High Commission on the day of the bombings, commented,
“It is hard to believe that it has been ten years since the bombings on 7/7. The horrific events of that day remain crystal-clear for anyone who was in London that day.
I am proud of the way that we banded together in a show of strength and national unity after the attacks. The ceremony today was very moving, and the nationwide moment of silence showed that we are still united as a community 10 years after the bombings.”
