Footage of Jean Charles de Menezes travelling on a bus just minutes before he was shot dead by police was shown to an inquest jury today.

 

The CCTV images were captured as the 27-year-old Brazilian travelled to work from his south London home.

The grainy pictures showed Mr de Menezes wearing a blue denim jacket and black T-shirt as he boarded the number two bus in Tulse Hill.

Several minutes later the cameras captured an undercover surveillance officer, known only as Ivor, sitting a few seats in front of him.

In Brixton, a council street camera recorded Mr de Menezes getting off the bus in the High Street.

Mr de Menezes can be seen among a large crowd of people opposite Brixton Tube station, which he found was closed.

He is then caught on camera again as he re-boarded the bus and sat upstairs for the short journey to Stockwell.

But the third day of the inquest into his death heard that other cameras on the bus, Stockwell Tube station and the train were faulty.
