On 8 September 2007, animal rights activists Denny Davidson and Nell Mendez planned to detonate a peroxide bomb at an animal testing facility. However, as the bomb, which was concealed in a suitcase, was loaded onto a coach on Hesketh Road, it exploded unexpectedly, resulting in the destruction of several adjacent buildings and dozens of casualties.

As emergency services worked to rescue survivors and remove bodies, a regretful Denny aided medics by providing first aid and offering support to survivors and distraught relatives. Nell was injured by a shard of metal and was taken to Holby City Hospital's emergency department for treatment. There, she admitted to handling explosives, but she suffered a catastrophic stroke before she could confirm the existence of additional devices.
