The UK has been expecting this to happen, and rehearsing for large-scale attacks. Also, after decades of IRA bombings, or the threat thereof, I think our "cousins" have become very resilient. Kudos to the police and emergency services, and to all those who helped the injured.
Madrid was far worse in terms of victims, but I know what many of you are saying - it makes a difference when you're somewhat familiar with a city from visits there, and/or have friends who live there. Having used the Tube, and never without claustrophobia (it's so deep!), I can only imagine the dread people trapped there felt.
