EMILY Attack was forced to run from London’s 7/7 bombing in terror and heard the bus blast go off, her mum has revealed.

Emily – who would have been 15 at the time – ran two miles until she reached safety.

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the horrifying day 52 people were killed and over 700 injured when four suicide bombers detonated explosives during the morning rush hour.

Emily’s mum Kate Robbins wrote on Twitter: “15 yrs ago- Emerging from Kings Cross tube with 15 yr old @EmAtack , the police yelled ‘Run!’

“Along with hundreds of others we ran non-stop from KingsX to Soho. We heard the bus bomb as we ran.

“Remembering the 52 souls who lost their lives today. #londonbombings NEVER FORGET.”

Tube trains at Edgware Road, Aldgate and Russell Square were hit by explosions on July 7, 2005.

A bomb was also detonated on a bus at Tavistock Square.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, all physical events commemorating the 7/7 bombings were cancelled.

Virtual commemorations went ahead today to remember those who lost their lives in the attack.

Survivor Thelma Stober told The Sun this week she can still remember the sounds of screaming passengers and the smell of burning metal as she lay on the train track in shock, after being caught up in the 7/7 terror attack.
