MI5 officers to give evidence to 7/7 inquiry

MI5 officers could be called to answer questions in public as part of the inquests into the deaths of 52 people in the terrorist bomb attacks on July 7 2005 which finally gets under way today.

More than five years after the attacks, bereaved families will have the chance to ask questions from the police and emergency services about whether their loved ones could have been saved.

Lady Justice Hallett has ruled that the scope of the inquests should also include the sensitive issue of whether the attacks could have been prevented, which could involve calling officers from MI5 to explain their decisions.

However, lawyers for the Security Service have argued that any public cross-examination of officers would risk the disclosure of sensitive information and the issue remains unresolved as the five-month inquest begins.
