    7/7 bombings were the worst terror attack in British history. This is the worst in over a decade.

      The worst terrorist attack in recent British history was Lockerbie. Coventry was regarded at the time as a terror attack, but we know better now. But the worst terrorist attack in British history remains the one that was foiled on the 5th of November 1605. Had it succeeded it would have wiped out half of London. Remember, remember.
