Addressing lessons from the emergency response to the 7 July 2005 London bombings

Terrorists attacked London on 7 July 2005, claiming 52 innocent lives and injuring hundreds more. Many more people were affected by their experiences that day and in the days that followed. Questions have been asked of the Government about our preparation, response, and the support provided to survivors. This document looks at the main lessons we have identified from the multi-agency response to the bombings, either through our formal lessons learned process or as a result of having listened to many of those affected. It also describes progress made in addressing the lessons identified. We focus on significant issues relevant to the response to future emergencies across the UK that need to be tackled by central Government.
