RMT memorialThe RMT has demanded Transport for London remove a cash machine placed directly in front of the memorial to victims of the 7/7 bombings at King’s Cross station.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “RMT members are furious that this cash machine has been jammed right in front of the King’s Cross 7/7 memorial and we want it removed and removed right now.

“It’s hard to imagine the thinking behind this disgraceful move which shows a cavalier disregard to the memories of those who were killed and injured and those who risked their own lives in the rescue operation.

“Those responsible should be ashamed of themselves and should waste no time in taking swift and decisive action to remove the machine.”
