Strictly speaking if your friend is only passing through the UK in transit to Bermuda and simlpy changes panes in london then he doe not need a visa as Egyptian nationals do not need an air side transit visa but if he needed to leave the transit area of the air port he would need a transit visa:

He will however have to make sure he has whatever permission he needs to enter Bermuda as an UK airline will not allow him on the plane in London if he does not have this

When l went to the immigration here in Bermuda, l asked them what documents he needs to enter Bermuda, they never help anyone from Egypt to enter Bermuda. they don't have a Egypt consulate here in Bermuda. should l call the British Embassy in London or Cairo.

I am sorry but it has nothing to do with the UK Bermuda has it's own immigration system. Only the bermudan authorities can tell you what the rules are.
