Inquests begin for 7/7 bombing victims
THE inquests into the deaths of 52 innocent people, including two from Suffolk, who were killed when bombers targeted London will begin today.
Five years after the terror attacks of 7/7 devastated the capital, the relatives of those tragically killed will be able to discover if their loved ones could have been saved.
The inquests will look at whether the emergency services’ response was adequate and whether MI5 and the police could have prevented the 2005 atrocities.
Richard Ellery, 21, who worked in the Jessops camera shop in Ipswich, was travelling to the capital for a staff training day on the morning of the terror attacks.
He was killed in the explosion at Aldgate.
