A police spokesman confirmed family liaison officers had been deployed, but was unable to comment further.

Another Ipswich man, Richard Ellery, 21, who works in the town's Jessops camera shop, has also not made contact with his family since 8.30am on Thursday when he was travelling to London for a staff training day.

The ban on troops and their families from RAF Lakenheath and RAF Mildenhall going within the M25 perimeter had provoked severe criticism, but was lifted yesterday.

The move came as police revealed the London terror bombings were the first suicide attacks on British soil and were carried out by home-grown terrorists.

One of the four suicide bombers was thought to be Shahzad Tanweer, 22, who friends described as a cricket-loving sports science graduate, and another of the bombers was only a teenager.

At least three of them are believed to have been British males of Pakistani origin who lived in west Yorkshire.
