Firefighters 'lacked equipment' for 7/7 London bombings

Firefighters lacked the training and first aid equipment to treat the most seriously injured, the 7/7 London bombing inquests have heard.

They were told that some of the wounded in the attack at Aldgate in 2005 were untreatable by the fire service.

Firefighter Sean Jones said their first aid kit at the time was "useless" for dealing with such horrific injuries.

The inquests are into the deaths of 52 people who were killed by suicide bombers on three Tube trains and a bus.
