Inquest into 7/7 deaths concludes

THE INQUEST into the July 7 terrorist attacks of 2005 which killed a Swanwick man has ruled the emergency services could not have saved any of the 52 victims, even if they had arrived earlier.

Civil engineer Michael Brewster, known to his friends as ‘Stan’ was killed on the Edgeware Road tube train when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device yards away from where he was standing.

Coroner, Lady Justice Hallett ruled that the emergency services did not contribute to any of the 52 dead. However confusion in MI5’s system of assessing terrorist suspects and questions over its record-keeping continued to cause concern almost six years after 7/7 attacks, the coroner said.

Four bombs exploded in central London on July 7, 2005. Delivering verdicts of unlawful killing for all the victims.
