Relatives of Britons lay memorial wreath to Sept. 11 attack victims

Relatives of Britons who died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in the United States in 2001 joined U.S. Embassy staff in laying a memorial wreath in a central London park on Friday.

The ceremony, held two days ahead of the four-year anniversary of the attacks which killed 2,823 people, was led by U.S. Ambassador to Britain Robert Tuttle. Sixty-seven British nationals were among the 500 foreigners from 91 countries who died in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001.

Patricia Bingley, 71, was one of several British mourners who attended Friday's ceremony at a memorial garden in front of the U.S. Embassy in Grosvenor Square, central London.

Bingley's son Kevin Dennis, 43, who worked for brokerage firm Cantor Fitzgerald in the World Trade Center, was killed in the 2001 terrorist attack.

"The pain does not get any better," Bingley said Friday. "This is the only place I can come and remember him."

"When I visit this memorial I see his name up there on the plaque and I put my hand across it to get close to him."
