THE spotlight fell on St Albans and Redbourn during a TV show last night.
Channel 4's popular programme Location, Location, Location visited the area in the hunt for a family home for terror attack survivor Martine Wright and her future husband Nick.
Martine was the last survivor to be pulled from the wreckage of the Aldgate tube bombing in the July 7 attacks on London in 2005.
Having been just a few feet away from the bomber when the explosion happened, she lost both legs and 90 per cent of her body's blood.
