The town marked a minute’s silence this morning (Tuesday, July 7) to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the bombings on London’s transport network.

The minute’s silence was held at 11.30am.

The bombings killed 52 people.

Kevin Boorman, spokesman for Hastings Borough Council, said: “It is very sad that we had to hold another minute’s silence, to remember the 7/7 victims, only days after we remembered those shot in Tunisia. In both cases innocent people going about their ordinary lives, or being on holiday, were killed, and it is right that we stop to remember them.”
