Londoners are aware that the threat of another attack is present; the city’s police chief has confirmed more bombings may be being planned, yet people’s will to remain defiant is strong. Anna Elliott survived the Kings Cross bombings – and went back to remember: “The morning I managed to come by tube to this, which is what I really wanted to do. It was quite important to face it, and say I can’t let it beat me, I can do it, I can come here. I can stand at King’s Cross and I can express whatever emotions come to me because it’s OK to feel like this today,” she said.

Some travellers admit they still have a heightened sense of awareness when they take the tube or bus. “It was a bit scary but now I’m OK, but today it’s a bit…you know…because it is one year after the bombings and it’s a bit scary,” said one passenger. The head of the British Transport Police has called on the public to remain vigilant, and help security services do their job.
