Children in Need inadvertently handed £20,000 to the 7/7 London bombers, it emerged last night.
The BBC charity cash was given to a bookshop run by Mohammed Siddique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer, who spent it on videos glorifying holy war.
It also funded computers, gym equipment and the rafting trip made by the pair a month before their attacks claimed 52 lives.
