EVIDENCE of the July 7 bombers’ preparation for their attacks was shown in court for the first time.
In a chilling “to-do” list, the Aldgate bomber, Shezhad Tanweer, reminds himself to sort out “house clearance, bills, wills”.
But alongside the household tasks he also notes, “back-up plan, actual plan, role on day”.
He makes a note to remember “aftershaves, car, batteries, fire extinguishers”.
The list was shown to the jury in the case of Waheed Ali, Mohammed Shakil and Sadeer Saleem, sitting at Kingston Crown Court.
Shakil, 31, Ali, 24, and Saleem, 27 are accused of conspiring with Mohammed Siddique Khan, of Dewsbury, Shezhad Tanweer, Jermaine Lindsay, a former Rawthorpe High School student, Hasib Hussain and others unknown to cause explosions between November 17 2004 and July 8 2005. They all deny the charges.
A fragment of a note recovered from the wreckage of the Russell Square bomb was also shown in court.
On it the time taken by tube trains to travel between various stations is carefully noted.
