A MUM who lost both her legs in the London bombings will compete in the 2012 Paralympic Games.

Martine Wright, who moved to Tring with husband Nick in 2008, is part of a sitting volleyball team that has qualified for the games.

She lost both her legs when the Aldgate suicide bomber triggered his deadly device just feet away from her on an underground Circle line train on July 7, 2005.

Martine became involved in volleyball after being invited to a paralympic potential day at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
