Imagine how many more British lives could have been saved if they did their job in protecting UK citizens?

Lessons learnt

Of course, it is easy to say that in hindsight now. The point of today's inquiry is to show that lessons need to be learnt from the atrocities that occurred that year.

This will not happen again

The atrocities in Tunisia were an abomination of the Foreign Office's failure to warn tourists about travelling to there. But one thing is for certain now; that will not happen again.
