7/7 victims were unlawfully killed, coroner rules

THE coroner hearing the 7/7 London bombings inquests has ruled the 52 victims who died in the suicide attacks were unlawfully killed.

Among the victims was Susan Levy, a 53-year-old legal secretary from Newgate Street Village, near Cuffley.

Lady Justice Hallett has been hearing evidence from 309 witnesses, and a further 197 statements, since the inquests began in October last year.

Suicide bombers attacked three Tube trains and a bus in London on July 7, 2005.

Tube trains at Aldgate, Edgware Road and Russell Square – on which Mrs Levy was on board – and a double decker bus in Tavistock Square.
