Tube bombing victim is remembered
Adrian Johnson
Mr Johnson's family said he "adored" his wife and children
A father-of-two killed in the London bombings has been remembered in his home community in Nottinghamshire.

Adrian Johnson, 38, from Sutton in Ashfield was travelling on a tube train that exploded between King's Cross and Russell Square on 7 July.

Family and colleagues paid tributes at his funeral, which was held at St. Andrew's Church in Skegby.

He leaves behind wife, Catherine, 36, and his two children, Christopher, aged nine, and six-year-old Rebekah.

Mr Johnson - described as a "wonderful father" - died as he returned from a mid-week visit to see his family, something he rarely did.

He died along with 25 others when bomber, Germaine Lindsay, 19, blew himself up.

Rev. Richard Kellett told mourners: "We should not have to be here, but we will not let evil overcome us.

"In our service of thanksgiving and celebration for the life of Adrian, let us draw hope and comfort from God."
