Marking 20 years since the London bombings.

At this exact moment 20 years ago, the third of three nail bombs in two weeks exploded in London. The Admiral Duncan was deliberately targeted in a homophobic hate crime. Three people lost their lives and many more were injured. The attack followed on from two others, in Brixton and Brick Lane, which targeted black and Bangladeshi people.

The racist, homophobic murderer was arrested shortly after and eventually sentenced to life imprisonment.

The BBC has interviews with some of the survivors.

Liberal Democrat London Mayoral Candidate Siobhan Benita summed up her feelings in this tweet:

There is so much more to do to eradicate racism and homophobia from our society.
