    A coroner at the inquest into the 7/7 suicide bomb attacks in London has made nine recommendations after ruling that the victims were unlawfully killed.

    Lady Justice Hallett produced a report today at the end of a 19 week inquest into the deaths of 52 people, including three Jewish victims, who were killed after four bombers targeted three Tube trains and one bus in the capital in 2005.

    She suggested the London Ambulance Service re-examine training in relation to multi-casualties, Transport for London (TfL) review how it is alerted to major incidents on the underground and that TfL reconsiders providing first aid equipment on trains.

    She said: "Although considerable progress has been made over the last six years, each organisation has accepted that there are lessons to be learnt from 7/7 and improvements to be made."

    Miriam Hyman, a 32-year-old picture editor and member of Golders Green's North Western Reform Synagogue, Israeli charity worker, Anat Rosenberg, 39, and Susan Levy, a 53-year-old mother of two from Hertfordshire, were among the victims.
