Morley and Scott recovers after bomb

Accountancy firm's staff return to work after Tavistock Square bus bombing

The staff and partners of Morley and Scott, the accountancy firm brought to a
standstill by the terrorist bus bomb on Tavistock Square, have now fully
returned to work.

Sources in the firm say it has been a struggle to return to normal, but
clients have been supportive and understanding of delays.

None of the 45 staff at the firm were injured in the blast, although many
helped with those hurt by the explosion.

Staff were working as normal by Monday this week, although the police had
removed a security cordon and the remnants of the bombed bus by the end of last
week.

The lobby of Morley’s building, Lynton House, became a makeshift hospital for
the wounded immediately after the attack. Some of the firm’s own first aiders
were among the first on the scene after the bus was devastated by the bomb.

At least another 20 businesses occupy space in Lynton House, and the
Metropolitan police has presented a plaque for the building’s lobby area
commemorating the help given by staff working in the building.

Staff continue to have access to professional counselling through a
designated partner and the HR department.
