Bob Crow was a left-wing trade union leader - General Secretary of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT).
Bob Crow got higher wages for his members and the RMT's membership increased from around 57,000 in 2002 to more than 80,000 in 2008.
He nearly died.
Police ruled out burglary as a motive and said the attack was was “premeditated”.
The police fitted a panic button in his home because he was “a target of further attacks.“
This attempt on his life happened just before Crow was elected RMT leader in 2002.
