  1. A nation remembers

    It's been a day of remembrance and reflection for all those affected by the events of 7 July 2005.

    Scenes from events on 7 July 2015

    The morning began with a wreath-laying at the memorial in Hyde Park and gatherings at the four sites targeted. The national service of commemoration at St Paul's Cathedral brought together the relatives of those who died as well as the survivors and officials who played a part on the day 10 years ago, and a minute's silence was observed.

    And the afternoon saw the attention switch back to Hyde Park for an emotional service attended by the Duke of Cambridge.

    We are bringing our live coverage to an end now, but you'll be able to keep up to date with any further developments and reaction in our news story.

  2. 'I too am a survivor'


    Leah emails: I was on Piccadilly line train. I remember seeing things I wished I hadn't and not understanding why there would be bodies by the train if there had been a crash or a derailment. I remember a man running through the empty train screaming. I remember emerging onto the platform, not knowing where to go. I remember the police, the sirens, the other people covered in soot. I remember walking through Tavistock square, more sirens and stares. I remember being checked at the hospital, being photographed by police. I remember realising how close I was to the bomb. It took a long time for things to sink in. I had a counselling session quite soon, work insisted. But I thought I was fine. It took over two years before I was diagnosed with PTSD. I couldn't travel on the tube, I had flashbacks, I was prone to floods of tears on the way to work. I had thought I was fine, but proper therapy and CBT did wonders. I too am a survivor.

  3. Images 'haunting'

    5 Live

    BBC Radio 5 live Daily talked to a psychologist who suggests "people are haunted" by images from the London bombings.

    Dr Rachel Handley, who provided therapy to those suffering with post-traumatic stress following the attacks, said there were a variety of triggers for disturbing memories.

    "When they close their eyes there may be images, nightmares, dreams even flashbacks during their moment by moment daily lives," she said.

    "It's very likely that many, many people walked away that day not really comprehending what had happened to them."

    Sitara Amin Tilly emails: Ten years ago I was going to Holborn for a Summer School at the London School of Economics. I was 16. I remember the train I was on. It was packed full of people, and I was writing my homework on the train. I remember a bang, the smoke, wondering if I could breathe and the panic in people's faces. I remember screaming for help coming up from the tunnel. I remember 45 minutes feeling like the rest of my life. I cried. I was so scared. I walked tentatively down the tunnel. Covered in soot and dirt, crying my eyes out, I ran home. I walked miles. I still hate the tube, I hate small spaces and I can't stand BBQs.... It still feels like yesterday.

  5. Remembering each victim

    Earlier on the @BBCNews Twitter account we named each of the 52 victims one-by-one.

    You can revisit the Twitter entries to find out more about each of the the victims' lives and their interests and follow a link to their obituaries.

  6. 'They will always stay with me'

    Paramedic Craig Cassidy was one of the first on the scene at Aldgate Station that day.

    He said: "My memories are still very exact and precise, I can put myself back into that situation very easily.

    Craig Cassidy

    "I was flagged down in my car outside the station to what I believed was a train crash and it was only when we were being escorted down we were told it was believed to be explosives, and that changes your mindset.

    "It was just horrific. Once we got inside we were just surrounded by scenes of devastation. There are several people I remember distinctly, who unfortunately we were unable to to help. A younger female and a younger male who will always stay with me."

  7. '50% of the people I helped, died that day'

    PC Ashley Walker was near the bus blast on Tavistock Square when he was starting a shift as a trainee officer.

    PC Ashley Walker

    He said: "All I could see was the roof of the bus in mid-air. The debris around the back of the bus, The initial shock and horror of people's faces as they looked towards me. I can initially see injured people and then as I run closer to the bus I'm seeing the debris of people. My initial thought was just get in the bus and help people.

    "I get flashbacks every year when the memorial comes up. I think about every victim and every person I helped and I'll be honest probably 50% of the people I helped, died that day."

  10. 'How could it not get to you?'

    Mike Brown, the managing director of London Underground, said: "It was a pretty horrendous day. We did see the worst of humanity that day but we also saw the best and beyond that day we saw the best of London coming together as the greatest, most diverse city in the world, people not being defeated by the evil of that day. We ran the Tube the next day with 85% of trains running.

    Mike Brown

    "The scale of the day first occurred to me on my way home and I rang my wife up when I was in a cab on my way home at about 00:30, I had no concept of the time. I just wanted to speak to my wife and my small baby son.

    "It was a real sobering point for me. You try to be professional, I have to say I did have a few moments where it does get to you, how could it not get to you?"

  12. 7/7 'defined me'

    Asad Ahmad

    Presenter, BBC London

    Sajda Mughal was on one of the Tube trains which was targeted and said she "was literally preparing for death....being a Muslim I was saying my prayers".

    Sajda Mughal

    She told me when she learned the attacks were carried out by four Muslims "that piece of information completely shocked me….Islam completely condemns this kind of behaviour".

    Ms Mughal said looking back on the last 10 years it was the attacks which helped define her.

    "It was because of 7/7 I'm now doing what I'm doing today - working with grassroots communities, working with mothers who want support, working with those who are at risk of radicalisation and have been radicalised."

  13. 'An atmosphere of pain'

    BBC London 94.9

    Drivetime is broadcasting live from Hyde Park near the memorial to the 52 people killed in the 7 July attacks. It has been the setting for two remembrance services today.

    Presenter Chris Rogers said: "There's a strange atmosphere here. It's an atmosphere of people coming together and propping ourselves up and pulling ourselves through this difficult day, but it's also an atmosphere of a lot of pain."

    7/7 memorial

    Reporter, Richard Main said: "It's reflective. It's very quiet. It's one of the clever things about the design of this memorial that they have built a bank alongside the memorial because we're only about 50m from Park Lane and it's very busy, but you can't hear it here and it's very quiet and very peaceful."

  14. Reflecting on 7/7

    BBC One

    On the Six O'Clock News on BBC One Fiona Bruce will be live from Hyde Park near the memorial erected in memory of the London bombing victims following a ceremony of remembrance which took place earlier this afternoon.

    Directly afterwards at 18:30, BBC London News speaks to Muslim survivor of the attacks, Sajda Mughal, who says the atrocities helped define her and Home Affairs correspondent Nick Beake looks at how Scotland Yard has foiled 50 terror attacks in the 10 years since 7 July 2005.

  15. 'The UK has united in all this'

    Gill Hicks, who lost both her legs in the attacks 10 years ago, said: This is with me everyday, everyday is a different challenge. My life is quite unpredictable. But the one thing that is a constant is I don't have any legs as a result of that incident so that never goes away.

    "We must also highlight that there hasn't been a 'successful' incident like 7 July in 10 years and that's a real credit to our intelligence and police forces and all those people doing the grassroots work. The people of the UK have come together and united in all this."

  16. Minutes 'can determine your destiny'

    Gill Hicks, a former jazz singer, was the last survivor to be rescued from the Piccadilly line Tube train after a bomb went off at Russell Square. Twenty-six people died.

    She said today: "It's been a very difficult day. I think something you can't really prepare for, that's what really has taken me by surprise. How emotional it is even though we're now marking 10 years which is a decent space of time to readjust to life.

    Gill Hicks

    "I remember it very vividly. When we look at Tube travel, everything is by the minute and it's really made me think about how disposable our life is - actually five minutes in the Underground can determine your destiny of life or death.

    "I now have this incredible hindsight. If I was just 40 seconds later I might have stood in a different position and that might have cost me my life, but I managed to survive. I've lost parts of both ear drums, throat, lungs, lung capacity. But I'm alive. That's all that matters."

  17. 'I feel close to him'

    Emma Ailes

    BBC News

    The mother of Philip Russell, who was killed at Tavistock Square, told me today: "I feel close to him everyday but today more than most."

  18. 'Day of sadness'

    Cardinal Vincent Nichols

    The head of the Roman Catholic church in England and Wales, was among the congregation at the St Paul's memorial service earlier in the day.

    "We salute the bravery of the emergency services and remember the dignity of the victims' families," he said in a statement.

    "We honour the memory of those who died and pray for the repose of their souls. In our remembrance we commit ourselves again to be resolute in the face of violence."

  24. 'Chaotic scene'

    British Transport Police's Bob Munn, who was the first uniformed officer on the scene at Aldgate Station after hearing of an explosion on 7 July 2005, said there was no doubt in his mind a bomb had been detonated.

    Bob Munn and Aldgate train

    Mr Munn said it was dark inside the station and the air was heavy, making it difficult to breathe. "People were shouting for help," he said. "It was chaotic, but I could see that two main doors of the train had been blown out.

    "My first, immediate assessment was that it was a bomb. I've seen bomb damage before. It could have been nothing else."

    As his radio didn't work in the underground, he had to run back up to street level to declare "a major incident". He then went back down to help.

    London's Evening Standard newspaper reflects on the events of 7 July 2005 its leader column tonight, while paying tribute to the way the city's residents reacted.

    "The ghastly novelty of 7/7 - of suicide attacks in an open western city - remains essentially the same today," it says.

    "For some of the injured and for the families of the dead, the scars will never heal. Today we remember them and we grieve for the lives shattered.

    "But we also take quiet strength from our city's response - our response - to such horror. This is a city that cannot be broken."

  27. Spontaneous applause

    A lot of emotion at 7 July London bombings Hyde Park memorial service as families laid flowers.

    Hyde Park

    There was a spontaneous applause from members of the public who have gathered.

  28. 'I felt almost unworthy'


    Andy emails: I was in the second carriage on the train at Kings Cross. I suffered minor cuts and bruising to my back and head. I was shielded by a glass partition that smashed during the blast. I was seen briefly by a medic when we made it back to the station platform but then simply discharged myself as I just wanted to get away. I was in a complete state of shock. Weeks later after suffering from flashbacks I went to see my GP who referred me for counselling. I was diagnosed with PTSD but only had two sessions as I felt almost unworthy in light what trauma and grief others had experienced.

  29. Emotional occasion

    The service ends with the Duke of Cambridge laying a bouquet of flowers at the memorial.

    BBC News correspondent Daniella Relph says the Hyde Park service was arranged by the families and had been a year in the planning.

    Prince William laying flowers in Hyde Park

    "Quite a lot of emotion has been pouring out," she says.

    "It was planned by them, and it has been conducted in a way that the families of those who died 10 years ago wanted.

    "We've had the formal event at St Paul's Cathedral but this was their event."

  30. Flowers laid

    Gerald Oppenheim, former chairman of the London Bombings Relief Charitable Fund, asks relatives of the those who died, and survivors, to each lay a single yellow gerbera flower at the memorial. Some touch the pillars as they line up to participate.

  31. 'No negative emotions'

    Esther Hyman, sister of Miriam Hyman who died in the Tavistock Square bus explosion, speaks at the Hyde Park service on behalf of the families of the bereaved.

    She suggests it is important to "relinquish the need to cling on to any negative emotions".

    Tim Coulson, a survivor of the Edgware Road explosion, is now reading out the names of the 52 victims.

  32. Reluctant hero

    It is now the turn of Paul Dadge, a former fire fighter who famously was pictured on 7 July outside Edgware Road Tube station helping a woman victim in a mask, to address the service in Hyde Park.

    Paul Dadge

    "Ten years on I see many of the faces I came to meet on that day," he says. "Like so many others that day... I did what I could. The difference for me was simply an image that meant what I did was made public."

When the bomb exploded I thought we had hit another train and my first thought was I don't want to burn to death. There was a deathly silence for about 30 seconds then the most ghastly screaming. I remember everyone being very calm. Paramedics checked us over and led us through the mangled debris. I then walked to Marble Arch and got a cab home. I have not been contacted since and felt for a while I was suffering from survivor guilt complex.

    Police taking part in counter-terrorism exercise in London

    Since the London bombings there have been enormous improvements in the way the police, the security service, community leaders and the public all tackle the threat from international terrorism.

    The authorities believe that it would be far harder, in 2015, for terrorists to carry out a complex, co-ordinated bomb plot like 7/7 without being detected. But conversely, that threat has diversified into something far harder to detect and stop.

    Anish emails: I saw the bus explode on Tavistock square. The train came to a halt and we were told to make our own way to our destination. I tried to walk to Kings Cross but an area around it had been cordoned off. I still remember how loud the sound was, and how high the top of the bus flew into air. I was 17 - the age when you start to learn some hard truths about the world. You realise that nobody is ever fully in control. We are all in a driverless car and anything can happen to anyone at anytime. I haven't sought any help and do not know whether I have any lasting psychological damage but I read the obituaries of all the victims. I can't think why it didn't occur to me to do before. As a Londoner these people feel so familiar and recognisable to me.

  53. International press reaction

    The anniversary commemorations have attracted much coverage in the international press. However, many correspondents have chosen to focus on the aftermath and fall out from the events of 7 July 2005.

    The New York Times talks about how the "coordinated attacks changed British attitudes, bringing a new focus on the spread of terrorism and further empowering the government to try to forestall extremism".

    The headline in Spain's El Pais refers to London "remembering the victims of the attack that changed the country".

    Hong Kong's South China Morning Post, meanwhile, runs an article by Associated Press correspondents in London tracing how some critics suggest that "powers introduced to combat the threat of al-Qaeda went too far".

    The Australian chooses to highlight Gill Hicks's journey from her home in Adelaide to London for the anniversary. The 46-year-old has become a tireless campaigner against violent extremism since she lost both her legs in the attacks, says the paper.

  54. Hyde Park memorial service

    As the families of victims and attack survivors leave St Paul's after the national of service of commemoration, many are heading to 7 July Memorial in Hyde Park.

    Hyde Park 7 July 2005 memorial

    The site was where the prime minister, mayor of London and representatives from the emergency services laid wreaths this morning at 08:50 - exactly 10 years after the bombings went off on the Tube network.

    This afternoon, the Duke of Cambridge will join the survivors and victims' families at the park for a service. Flowers will be laid and Prince William will then attend a private reception with them.

    Emma Ailes

    BBC News

    Unity has been the resounding message of the service at St Paul's Cathedral.

    St Paul's Cathedral service

    "Beyond the numbing shock of what happened, there was solidarity. There was unity in our grieving," the Bishop of London Richard Chartres said in his address.

    There is truth in his statement. Many of the relatives and survivors in the congregation - strangers until their lives were suddenly welded together by the blasts - have become firm friends, and a vital source of support for each other over the last decade.

    Leaders of all faiths pledged to stand united in the face of terrorism.

    A peal of bells marked the close of the service at midday.

    It was fitting that this significant anniversary be marked in St Paul's, whose dome came to symbolise Londoners' ability to pull together and go on during the Blitz

    Speaking to the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire at the site of the attack, Graham Russell, said: "Time does not heal. All it does is put the event further into the past. You never get closure. It's just that that scar has a thin veneer over it and every so often it breaks up."

  65. 'We've got to be vigilant'

    BBC London 94.9

    Met Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan Howe tells BBC London 94.9: "Looking back after all these years, the first thing we think about is the families of the 52 people who were murdered.

    "There were 4 murderers that day. We've got to remain eternally vigilant that does not happen again.

    "We've got to be vigilant. We've got to be prepared."

  66. 'Shock but solidarity on 7/7'

    Others in attendance at the service included former Prime Minister Tony Blair and Ken Livingstone, London Mayor at the time of the attacks.

    The Bishop of London, The Right Reverend Richard Chartres, reminded the service of the book of tributes to the victims set up after 7 July 2005. It reflected the capital's diversity and make up, he said.

    Bishop of London

    "There could have been so easily been a demonstration of anger but beyond the shock there was solidarity," he said.

    The story of how the residents coped and acted "deserves to be woven into the consciousness of London's memory," he added.

  70. Reflections on London

    Staff from Transport from London, the ambulance service, police and fire brigade gave readings at the St Paul's service, reflecting on the history of the four sites hit by the attacks.

    They were followed by a reading by a young Londoner, Aaron Grant-Booker.

    "These four pieces of London epitomise what is great about this city," he said.

    "When four bombs exploded on 7 July 2005, lives were destroyed and the flame of hope faltered for what seemed like an eternal moment.

    "For many people, nothing was the same again and yet everything was the same because the good which is in Londoners and the countless visitors whom they host at any given moment is not erased by hatred or threat but, rather, is fostered to produce a harvest of hope for each generation."
