|It all started off as a normal day! Working for The Associated Press, I had covered the jubilation of London winning the Olympic 2012 bid the previous day and London was a triumphant and proud city. The following day, Thursday, July 7, 2005, was supposed to be quiet and I had an early job covering a photo-call not too far from Edgware Road tube station. During the session, I received a telephone call from my picture editor at AP instructing me to head over to Edgware Road.|

|Stephen Mingay was the first BTP officer on the scene at Russell Square.|
Jane Mingay took the "iconic" pictures at Edgware Road.
Jane gives a statement in audio on a Guardian flash page here:
|Some of the names of Titled Families the Mingays' intermarried and became related. The first being William the Conqueror, in 1066 when a Mingay who came from Normandy was related to William.|
|I encountered Jane Mingay's name recently and knew I recognised the surname from somewhere. Thank you for reminding me.|
Mingay history, anyone?
The Mingay name also appears to have many connections to Norwich, as does the great misleader of the public and his boss Ian Blair, DAC Andy Hayman, as does a prominent eye-witness.
