The man shot dead in Stockwell Tube station was unconnected to the London bombings police have now confirmed. Scotland Yard are describing the death of the innocent man, chased into the tube station and shot dead in a carriage, as a "tragedy".
"We believe we now know the identity of the man shot at Stockwell Underground station by police on Friday... We are now satisfied that he was not connected with the incidents of Thursday 21st July 2005," says a statement issued by Scotland Yard.
A former commander of the Metropolitan Police says the consequences of the shooting could be "horrendous" and he expects officers to face criminal charges. He also thinks other officers may refuse to carry firearms after this incident.
