Thursday July 7 marks the 11th anniversary since 52 people lost their lives in a terrorist attack on London during rush hour.
July 7 will always day will forever be scarred into the country's memory, but for one Metropolitan Police officer who helped victims on that day, it will also be remembered as the day she retired from the force.
PC Liz Kenworthy was an off-duty schools laison officer travelling on the Circle Line train in 2005 when the bomb struck, and hearing people shouting and screaming she set about helping the injured.
After pushing through to the next carriage she used her first aid training to help those with leg injuries while holding their hands and reassuring others.
Speaking of her role on that day, PC Kenworthy said: “As a survivor of 7/7 I'm prouder than I can say of the efforts of everyone involved on that terrible day and over the 11 years since.”
Praised for bravery
But having served the Met for almost 30 years PC Kenworthy is handing in her badge and retiring from the force on Thursday (July 7) – 11 years after the terrorist attack shocked the capital.
She was honoured with an MBE in 2008 and also given a Commisssioner's High Commendation for her bravery that day.
PC Kenworthy was also praised while giving evidence at an inquest for those who lost their lives.
Coroner Lady Justice Hallett said: “I know you've been trained, but you were off duty and off guard and you yourself were a victim.
“To respond the way that you did takes a very exceptional person.”
While she is not sure what the future holds for her, PC Kenworthy will be taking a well deserved summer break before starting the search for her next calling.
She said: “I've served with the Met since 1987, almost all of my policing career and I've thoroughly enjoyed my service, despite the difficulties and the challenges – it has never been dull.
“I've been extremely lucky to have great colleagues and some amazing experiences. London is an endlessly fascinating place to work and I've thoroughly enjoyed my time here.
PC Kenworthy added: “I'd just like to thank everyone who I've worked with for treating me kindly, humouring my eccentricity, and making me laugh often.”
