THE sister of a woman murdered in the July 7 London bombings was present at the unveiling of a permanent memorial to the victims in Hyde Park.
Andrea Watson, of Rossett, was thinking of her only sibling, Fiona Stevenson, 29, a solicitor, who was killed in the Aldgate train bomb.
Andrea, a personnel officer for Wrexham Council, was with her husband Ian and parents Ivan and Emer, from Little Baddow, Essex.
The memorial marks the 52 people who died and hundreds injured when four suicide bombers detonated backpacks at separate locations on public transport in 2005.
The memorial consists of 52 stainless steel pillars, each 3.5m (11.5ft) tall, grouped to represent the four attacks. Members of the bereaved families group have said it is a “fitting tribute”.
A plaque alongside the pillars lists the names of those killed in the bombings.
Andrea has previously raised funds in Fiona’s name to pay for underprivileged and special needs children in Belize to learn to swim.
The youngsters won Fiona’s heart when, as a lawyer, she spent four months doing voluntary service in the country.
