Numeral from p10 of the official report:
There was at the time of the attacks, reports of a “5th bomber”. It
was thought, because of witness statements and CCTV, that there
was a “5th man” with the group travelling down from Luton
. Inquiries
showed the individual was a regular commuter and he was
eliminated from the inquiry. Also in the period immediately following
the attacks, one man was arrested in connection with the
investigation but he was released without charge. In subsequent
weeks, a further man who had claimed to be the “5th bomber” was
also arrested and later charged with wasting police time. There is no
intelligence to indicate that there was a fifth or further bombers.
There is no mention of whether this CCTV is from the train or the platform at Luton. Newspaper reports all said the platform.

How many are you intending to send? :)

There's also the car park at Luton :
Therefore, there exists CCTV footage of all four men in and around Luton car park between 06.49 and 07.22, another 33 minutes of footage that has never been released into the public domain.

Reply from MPS:
Freedom of Information Act Request Reference No: 2006090006111

I write in connection with your request for information which was received by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) on 18/09/2006.  I note you seek access to the following information:
      *For what Thameslink services from Luton for London on July 7th 2005 between 7am and 8am does the MPS possess CCTV records from inside the trains?
      * Does the MPS possess CCTV records from the platform at Luton station on 7th July 2005 for the arrival and departure of the 7.24 am service, which is reported as departing at 7.25 am?
      * Does the MPS possess CCTV records from the platform at King\'s Cross Thameslink when the 7.24 am service from Luton, departing Luton at 7.25, arrived?
      * Does the MPS possess CCTV records from the King\'s Cross St Pancras underground ticket hall on 7th July 2005 between 8.25am and 8.50am?
      * Does the MPS possess CCTV records for the concourse at King\'s Cross Thameslink on July 7th 2005 between 8.20 am and 8.30 am?
      *
       
        You ask a series of questions which is not the fuction of the Freedom of Information Act. I therefore invite you to re-submit a request, formulating it in a manner which meets the requirements of the Act. I recommend that you consider the website of the Information Commissioner, or that of the Campaign for Freedom of Information (which is a comparatively straight forward explanation), which will advise as the the appropriate method of constructing your enquiry.
       
        I need to explain that the Act is not a means by which to pose questions and receive answers, it is a means by which you can ask to see material which you believe to be held by the relevant Public Authority. If that Authority holds the material, then it can be released to you unless one or more of the exemption factors apply (which is also explained on the websites referred to above). You should be aware that material concerning police investigations fails liable to the exemption under Section 30 of the Act therefore it may be appropriate that you consider the advice relating to that section in formulating your enquiry.
       
        You will find considerable information concerning the events of the 7th July on the attached website of the Home Office.
       
       
        www.homeoffice.gov.uk/documents/7-july- ... iew=Binary
       
        After receiving your reply, your request will then be considered and you will receive the information requested within the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Freedom of Information Act 2000, subject to the information not being exempt or containing a reference to a third party. 
       
        However, if the requested additional information has not been received by 13th January 2007 I will assume you no longer wish to proceed with this request and will treat it as withdrawn.
       
        There may be a fee payable for the retrieval, collation and provision of the information you request.  If this is the case you will be informed and the 20 working day timescale will be suspended until we receive payment from you.  If you chose not to make a payment then your request will remain unanswered.
       
        Your attention is drawn to the attached sheet which details your right of complaint.
       
        I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in the MPS and look forward to your response.
       
        Should you have any further inquiries concerning this matter, please write or contact Neil Smith on telephone number 0207 230 2717  quoting the reference number above.
       
        Yours sincerely,
       
        Neil Smith
        Detective Inspector
        Counter Terrorism Command
        New Scotland Yard
