Recommended Posts

Eldorado

 A campaigner told how a wall tribute in honour of the 21 victims who died in the Birmingham pub bombings shows the 'strength of human kindness.'

Julie Hambleton, who lost her sister Maxine in the devastating blasts in November 1974, said she was overwhelmed with emotion after visiting the poignant spot in Bromsgrove Street, in the city centre.

A convoy of more than 100 cars and bikes marked the 46th anniversary of the Birmingham pub bombings.

Friends and relatives of the 21 killed and 220 injured in the 1974 atrocity began in Aston and were ending at West Midlands Police's headquarters.

Campaigners are calling for a public inquiry to establish "truth, justice and accountability".
