HERO doctor Mohib Khan has earned praise on high.
He was one of 200 guests at a Downing Street reception last night to receive a nation's thanks for his bravery after the July 7 terrorist attacks.
But as the Huddersfield doctor met Prime Minister Tony Blair and his wife Cherie, he admitted his thoughts were still with the families and relatives of the 56 victims of the blasts.
Mr Blair hosted the reception for emergency service personnel and rescuers who helped in the terrible aftermath of Britain's firsrt suicide bombings.
Dr Khan - named last month as an Examiner Community Award winner - was in a meeting when explosions rocked the capital's transport system.
He and other doctors ran from the HQ of the British Medical Association to help vicitims of the Tavistock Square bus bomb, and said the terrible sights he saw that day will stay with him forever.
Dr Khan, 60, treated casualties in the street, despite the threat of another blast.
He is a specialist in urology at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and was visiting the BMA offices when the four terrorist bombers - including men from Huddersfield and Dewsbury - struck.
Dr Khan said: "The reception was hosted by the Blairs and I was delighetd to accept their invitation.
"But I have to say my thoughts and prayers are syill with the families of the victims and the surviors ofnthe exploiosns.
"Many of those are still suffering four months after the bombings."
