London Underground still 'extremely vulnerable' to attack

The London tube and bus network remains "extremely vulnerable" to terrorist attack, according to a Commons report published on the fourth anniversary of the 7 July, 2005 suicide bomb attacks.

The London 2012 Olympics also remains "another critical area of vulnerability", according to the report from the Commons home affairs select committee published today.

In their review of the government's counter-terrorism policy, the MPs say airport-style security will never be compatible with the demands of a mass transit system that carries millions of passengers every day.

However, the committee says that the capital's transport network is a key point of vulnerability for Britain, and there is "no room for complacency".
