The Bishopsgate Bomb: Toll of injured rises to 51
Monday 26 April 1993
It was confirmed that the man who died was Edward Henty, a freelance photographer working for the News of the World.
The injured included seven police officers and a traffic warden. Last night three remained in hospital in a stable condition. Their injuries included head wounds and a collapsed lung.
The Queen sent a message of condolence yesterday to Mr Henty's family, who live in Clapham, south London.
It read: 'I was very shocked to learn of the devastation caused by the bombs in London yesterday. Please convey my heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family and all others injured in the blast at Bishopsgate.'
In a tribute published in the News of the World yesterday, Patsy Chapman, the editor, described Mr Henty as 'a real newspaper man, cheery and hard-working'. Mr Henty, 34, a father of two, was sent to the area once the News of the World had learnt of the bomb alert. Police believe that he may have been standing under the canopy at the entrance to the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank building when the explosion happened. His wife, Yasmin, said: 'He was a good photographer, a loving father and a good husband. I've lost my oldest friend.'
The couple would have celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary yesterday.
Danny Carter, the father of 15- year-old Danielle Carter, who was killed in the Baltic Exchange bombing a year ago, said the latest attack had brought memories flooding back: 'This bomb was 200 yards away from the last one. I can just see Danielle lying there . . . I just think these people are playing Russian roulette with our lives.'
