Terrorist attacks
Central London is continuing to get back to 'business as normal' following the bombings in central London on Thursday 7 July (the Metropolitan Police have now reported the total number of fatalities that day to be 56 and the total number of casualties as approximately 700) and following further, related incidents which occurred in London on Thursday 21 and 22 July.
