Tavistock Square Bus Explosion
7th July 2005

Posted in > >

The final detonation of the series of co-ordinated attacks on London transport came almost an hour after the first 3 bombs exploded on the underground network. The number 30 bus stopped in Tavistock square when an explosion ripped through the upper deck, killing the alleged bomber and 14 other passengers. As the only attack to take place above ground, the image of the half-destroyed bus became one of the defining images of the atrocities and many photographs of the immediate aftermath are in circulation.

As such, the Tavistock Square bombing has perhaps been studied more closely than any of the other attacks to advance theories of conspiracy.
