Warrington recalls IRA bombing 20 years on

Help

Hundreds of people in Warrington have gathered to remember an IRA bomb attack which killed two boys 20 years ago.

Johnathan Ball, three, died when two bombs hidden in litter bins detonated on Bridge Street on 20 March 1993. Tim Parry, 12, died five days later.

A civic service took place at the scene before a minute's silence was held at 12:27 GMT, the time the bombs went off.

Doves were released by minister of state for Northern Ireland Mike Penning MP, and the mother of Tim Parry.
