One of the last victims still being treated for her injuries from the July 7 London bombings left hospital today, nine months after the terror attacks.

Martine Wright, 33, lost both her legs, injured her arm and suffered permanent hearing damage from the Aldgate blast.

The international marketing executive was only a few feet away from suicide bomber Shehzad Tanweer when he detonated the explosives in his rucksack.

Today, she left the Douglas Bader Unit at Queen Mary Hospital in Roehampton, south London, which specialises in prosthetic limbs.

On leaving, she said: "It has been a long and difficult recovery which is still ongoing but it is a great relief to finally leave hospital."

Miss Wright was one of the last people to be pulled from the Aldgate wreckage alive, but she was in a critical condition.
