Morley and Scott staff receive counselling

Mid-tier firm based on Tavistock Square confirms staff will have access to counselling

Morley and Scott, the mid-tier firm based on Tavistock Square, scene of one
of last week’s terrorist bombings, has confirmed that its staff will have access
to counselling.

The Top 50 firm found itself at the centre of the worst terrorist attack in
British history, after one of the four bombs that ripped through London’s
transport network exploded directly outside Morley’s office.

Members of the first-aid team were some of the earliest on the scene after
the explosion on a number 30 bus, and the firm’s lobby was used as a makeshift
first aid unit to treat the injured. The firm is a member of a group support
scheme, partners said.

The profession was counting the human cost of the bombs this week, with as
many as five people working within accountancy missing since last Thursday.

The parents of Helen Jones, who worked for Phoenix Equity Partners and
formerly for PwC and KPMG, are reported as having accepted that she died in the
Piccadilly Line explosion.

Lee Baisden, an accountant with the London fire brigade; Rachelle Yuen;Monika
Suchocka, who works for London 1st, a small firm in West Kensington; and James
Adams, who is sub-contracted to Deloitte’s audit practice, are all listed as
missing.
