BBC It would be “impossible” to reveal secret MI5 files about the 7/7 London terror attacks, a court has been told.
The claim has been made at a hearing to decide the format of inquests into the deaths of those killed in 2005.
Lawyers for the families of those who died argue the hearing should also look at whether the intelligence services could have prevented the attacks.
Counsel for the home secretary and MI5 argued examining MI5’s involvement was outside the scope of the inquests.
Four suicide bombers detonated their devices on three Tube trains and one bus killing 52 innocent people.
It emerged after the attacks that security agencies came across two of the bombers in 2004 while investigating other terrorist plots.
