ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) British Prime Minister David Cameron, Mayor of London Boris Johnson and other senior politicians and police officers gathered at the 7/7 memorial on Tuesday (July 7), in London's Hyde Park to mark the 10th anniversary of the July 7 bombings in the city. On July 7, 2005 four suicide bombers blew themselves up on London's public transport network during the busy morning commute. Fifty two people were killed, as well as the four bombers during the attacks on three tube trains and one bus. Cameron and Johnson both laid wreaths at the memorial at a ceremony attended by members of the public, which was observed in silence. Senior police officers also laid wreaths and saluted those killed in the attacks. The ceremony is the first in a number of events taking place to remember the victims across London ten years on. A one minute silence will be observed across Britain's capital at 1030GMT and a remembrance service will be held at St Paul's Cathedral late on Tuesday morning, before another service is held at the memorial in Hyde Park during the afternoon.
