Emergency services 'too slow' says 7/7 blast survivor

A survivor of the 7 July attacks in London says some victims died in agony because emergency crews were initially prevented from going into the underground tunnels back due to safety regulations.

Michael Henning, who was travelling on the Aldgate train, gave evidence at the inquest into the 52 people who died in the 2005 bombings.

Outside court Mr Henning told the BBC the response from the emergency services was too slow, adding that some victims could have survived if crews had been able to act earlier.
