A PAINTING honouring the 52 people killed in last July's London bombings has been presented to London Underground.
The work is by artist John Bray and shows 52 red hearts against a background of the capital.
The painting is entitled A Week in July - The 52 and was handed over by Mr Bray at the Tube's St James's Park headquarters in London.
The July 7 explosions happened near Aldgate, King's Cross and Edgware Road Tube stations, while a bomb also went off on a bus in Tavistock Square.
The gang of four suicide bombers responsible for the tragedy included Jermaine Lindsay, 18, from Huddersfield, and Mohammed Sidique Khan, 30, who lived in Thornhill Lees.
Mr Bray said: "A Week in July - The 52, is a powerful yet gentle statement reflecting love for those taken from us; we often take for granted how much we care and how much we are loved until we face the loss of those close to us.
"The painting is dedicated to the Underground staff, the bus driver and all the emergency services involved in rescuing and caring for the injured; the quiet heroes who rolled up their sleeves and did what they had to do on that day."
London Underground chief operating officer Mike Brown, who received the painting, said: "We will never forget those who were killed and injured on July 7, or the heroic actions of so many passengers, transport staff and the emergency services.
"I am therefore very pleased to accept John Bray's great artistic tribute, which will be proudly displayed by London Underground."
