I can remember what I was doing when 7/7 happened. At work in Riverwalk House, on the tenth floor, when news started coming in of travel disruption due to some kind of incident. Someone memorably said "this city has the resilience of a paper bag," which was harsher in hindsight. People started phoning out to find that the mobile phone networks were down, and our email system was taken over by the Resilience division. For a long time we had no idea what was going on. People got home as best they could - I remember making phone calls from Raynes Park Station which was as far as I had been able to get (I'd moved out of Hammersmith to the outer suburbs four months earlier).
There is nothing about it on the news today although I suspect that BBC London may have something. Not being in London any more I wouldn't know.
