Conspiracy theories about the 7/7 attacks have no basis in evidence, the hearing was told.
Hugo Keith QC, counsel to the inquests, rejected claims that the four bombers were “duped” into carrying out the atrocities and that intelligence agencies allowed the plot to happen.
He also said there was nothing to support theories that the explosions on the London Underground were connected to a power surge or that the bombs went off under the Tube carriages.
Mr Keith said it was important to mention the ideas put forward by conspiracists – who have written at length to the inquests team – in order to dispel common myths about the attacks.
