Son recalls father's 1974 Birmingham pub bombing death
A man whose father was killed in the 1974 Birmingham pub bombings said a hearing into potential new inquests moved him to speak publicly for the first time.
Paul Rowland's father John was one of the 21 victims. He said: "I can just remember my mother being distraught and rocking backwards and forwards saying I don't believe it."
A hearing that could lead to the reopening of inquests into the deaths is under way.
Mr Rowland said a letter from the coroner's office had made him come forward.
