Workers at Metronet Rail, the infrastructure contractor for Underground sections including the Aldgate and Edgware stations, helped rescue passengers, ensured the bomb scenes were structurally safe for forensics, provided support for the police and London Underground at the two sites and then worked round the clock to repair the damage, according to managing director Mick Foote. Fifteen people died as a result of the Aldgate Edgware Road bombs. Another 41 died from attacks on the Piccadilly line and a bus.
