Blog: Leonie BarrieLondon bombings

Leonie Barrie | 8 July 2005

Many thanks to everyone who's been in touch to check that we're all OK after yesterday's tragic bombings in London. It probably wasn't unexpected that something like this would happen here eventually, but coming the day after the euphoric news that the capital would host the 2012 Olympic Games somehow made it doubly difficult to bear.

The mood in the UK today is obviously still one of shock and grief. But that indomitable British spirit is shining through, and listening to interviews on the radio this-morning it's clear that people are determined to get back to work and not let the terrorists win by disrupting their daily lives. The real irony is that the perpetrators of deplorable acts of violence such as this achieve absolutely nothing; instead, we're more united than ever in our determination to stand up to them.
