A WOMAN who lost both her legs in one of the 7//7 London Underground train bombings has given birth to her first child.

It has been four years since Martine Wright had to be revived five times on the operating table at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel after the bomb outrage at Aldgate.

She was one of 171 passengers injured on the Circle Line train in which seven people were killed when the bomb went off in the tunnel between Liverpool Street and Aldgate during the morning rush-hour on July 7, 2005.

But 36-year-old Martine gave birth to Oscar by Caesarian section just days after the fourth anniversary earlier this month, at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire.
