The funeral of the first victim to be named from the July 7 bombings in London has taken place. Susan Levy, a 53-year-old mother of two from Cuffley, Hertfordshire was tragically caught up in the King's Cross explosion.

Her funeral took place at Golders Green Crematorium in north west London and was attended by more than 100 people including husband Harry and sons Jamie and Daniel.

Last week, Mr Levy paid tribute to his wife.

He said: "Susan was a devoted and much-loved wife and mother of two sons. We are all devastated by our loss. She was a valued and respected member of her extended Jewish family and will be deeply mourned and sadly missed by us and her many friends."

"On the morning of Thursday July 7, Susan and her son Jamie left for work in central London. They parted at Finsbury Park and she continued her journey by travelling on the train that was victim of one of the appalling terrorist attacks that claimed so many lives."

"We are all distraught at her needless loss and our thoughts and prayers are also with the many other families affected by this horrendous tragedy."
