12th May 2016: Today, the 7/7 Memorial Trust releases details of their 2016 Memorial Lecture, to mark the 11th anniversary of the London Bombings on 7th July 2005.
The lecture will be delivered by June Kelly, BBC Home Affairs Correspondent, who over the past decade has worked on many chapters of the 7/7 story.
She reported from the scenes of the bombings, was in court for the inquests on the 52 who died and saw the bombers' associates face a criminal trial. She also covered the unveiling of the Hyde Park memorial and the 10th anniversary commemorations.
June will deliver the lecture on the evening of Monday 4th July at the British Medical Association in Tavistock Square. In previous years, the lecture has benefitted from the support of and been delivered by Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, Lord Ian Blair QPM, Martine Wright, the Captain of the British Paralympic Volleyball Team and Baroness Tessa Jowell.
In addition to the lecture, the 7/7 Tavistock Square Memorial Trust is campaigning to raise funds to erect a memorial in Tavistock Square, the site most closely recognised with the events of that morning. The Trust has already received donations of £105,000 towards their £130,000 target.
June Kelly comments "I am very pleased and honoured to be part of such an important event in the week when we will be remembering all that was lost on 7th July 2005."
