Graffiti was found sprayed onto the memorial of the July 7 bombings just hours before a service to commemorate the ninth anniversary of the attacks.
The slogans suggested that the four men blamed for the bombings were innocent. Although saddened by the graffiti, which was cleaned off by contractors, relatives nonetheless paid their respects to the 56 who died.
ITV News correspondent Sejal Karia reports.
