On 7th July 2005, four bombs were set off across London’s transport network, killing 52 innocent civilians, injuring over 770 people, and triggering panic and chaos across the city. The deadly bombs appear to have been triggered by mobile phones, but mobiles came into their own that fateful day for another reason…
The first footage of the blasts appeared on the internet within minutes of the attacks, via images and videos taken on mobile phones, which allowed people to capture the initial moments of chaos before the television crews and journalists arrived. The major networks, including the BBC and Sky News, appealed for footage, signalling a change in relationship between journalists and the public.
