Well, from my point of view and from the generality of the point of view I asked the Home Office. I think if you come to it there was a note which in the event I probably didn't see which indicated that nothing was known in the Home Office before 8 August, and indeed in the email trail behind another Met note, which didn't come to me, it went to another section of the Home Office, it's also expressed that little or nothing was known about this. So certainly up to 8 August I had not heard of this name, Caryatid, and I had not been briefed on anything at all.

And the final reinforcement of that recollection is I remember hearing about it, because I heard about it on the evening of 8 August through the media.
