Medical lessons learned of the Central London Suicide Bombings - 7th July 2005.
Presentation by David Whitmore, Clinical Advisor for the Medical Director of the London Ambulance Service NHS Trust
The 7 July 2005 London bombings, sometimes referred to as 7/7, were a series of coordinated terrorist suicide bomb attacks in central London which targeted civilians using the public transport system during the rush hour.
Four Islamist extremists separately detonated three bombs in quick succession aboard London Underground trains across the city and, later, a fourth on a double-decker bus in Tavistock Square. 52 people were killed and over 700 more were injured in the attacks. The explosions were caused by homemade organic peroxide-based devices packed into backpacks.
