Hasib Hussain, 18, detonated his device on a double-decker bus in Tavistock Square, not far from King's Cross. He killed 13 people.

The bombing, the fourth and final attack to be covered by the inquests, took place at 0947BST - about an hour after the explosions at Aldgate, Edgware Road and Russell Square.

The number 30 bus was torn apart in front of the headquarters of the British Medical Association, where a conference was being held.

The inquests have heard that while medical equipment was lacking, dozens of doctors were on hand to offer lifesaving expertise.
