The grieving family and friends of the first victim to be named in the London bombings gathered on Sunday to pay their last respects.

Susan Levy, a 53-year-old mother of two, was on the Piccadilly line when the King's Cross explosion tore through the train on 7 July.

Mrs Levy, of Cuffley, Herts, had been travelling with her son Jamie and the pair separated just before the blast.

More than 100 people attended Golders Green Crematorium in north London.

Among them were her husband, Harry, and their two sons, Jamie and Daniel, aged 25, who were accompanied by their girlfriends.

Last week, Mr Levy paid tribute to his wife, saying: "Susan was a devoted and much loved wife and mother. 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."

An inquest into her death was opened and adjourned at St Pancras Coroner's Court on 11 July.
