Sky continue to maintain their original claim that there were four bombers, and that they are all dead. This has not had direct police confirmation. But sky do provide a lot more details. One of the most important of these is that images of the four were captured by CCTV cameras at Kings Cross. There may be some doubt about the fourth of the bombers because the police inform that three come from the Yorkshire area, but say nothing about the fourth.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Peter Clarke explains:
“We know that all four of these arrived in London by train on the morning. We have identified CCTV footage showing the four men at King’s Cross Station shortly before 8.30am on that morning, July 7.
“One of them who had set out from West Yorkshire was reported missing by his family to the casualty bureau on July 7. We have been able to establish that he was joined on his journey to London by three other men. We have since found personal documents bearing the names of three of those four men close to the seats of three of the explosions.
“As regards to the man who is missing, some of his property was found on the route 30 bus in Tavistock Square. Property of a second man was found at the scene of the Aldgate bomb and in relation to a third man property with his name was found at the Aldgate and Edgware Road bombs.
“We have strong forensic evidence that it is very likely that one of the men from West Yorkshire died at the explosion at Aldgate.”
