A MAN whose ex-partner was killed in the 7/7 London Underground bombings four years ago is staging an event on Monday to help others suffering trauma.
Film-maker Raj Babbra lost his ex-partner Benedetta Ciaccia in the Aldgate bombing in July, 2005, one of seven rush-hour commuters killed on a Circle Line train, and has since made a film about the impact of her loss called Life Without Benedetta.
Now he is setting up a Living Through Loss’ organisation to help others take the first steps in learning to live with loss.
