Aldgate firefighters were 'hostile', 7/7 inquests hears

Firefighters at the Aldgate terrorist bombing were "hostile" and "quite upset", the 7/7 inquest has heard.

Paramedic Anthony Cumner was in the first ambulance to arrive at the Tube station after the 7 July 2005 attack.

He told the hearings that firefighters "did not understand the role" of the initial ambulance, which was to report the situation back to the control room.

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

June Kelly reports.
