London bombings survivor and Paralympic athlete Martine Wright, is to be reunited with the police officer who saved her life at a special memorial today. Martine lost both her legs in the attack on a Circle Line tube, nearly nine years ago. She is a guest speaker at the event.

The memorial lectures are held at the British Medical Association headquarters in Tavistock Square near where a bomb exploded on the number 30 bus.

They focus on themes of tolerance, humanity and the human cost of conflict.

Four bombs exploded across the capital's public transport network during the morning rush hour on 7th July 2005. 52 people lost their lives in the attack.
