Today, Warrington fell silent to remember the victims of the Warrington Bombings, 30 yeas ago on this very day.

Jonathan Ball (aged 3) and Tim Parry (aged 12) died – and 54 others were hurt when two bombs hidden in litter bins went off on Bridge Street on March 20, 1993.

Guests included Sir John Major & Colin and Wendy Parry

A rememberance service was held in the town and brought hundreds of people together to reflect on that tragic day – and also to give hope to peace in the future.

Guest of Honour, former Prime Minister, Sir John Major gave a heartfelt address to the crowd, which included distinguised guests including Colin & Wendy Parry.  

Manchester’s Mayor, Andy Burnham and Liverpool’s Metro Mayor, Steve Rotherham were in attendance – along with Mayor of Warrington, Cllr Jean Flaherty, Professor Steven Broomhead, Chief Executive of Warrington Borough Council  – and South Warrington MP, Andy Carter.

Our reporter Paul Smith was present, along with other Worldwide Media to bring highlights of the live service to our airwaves – and has presented a special feature which you can listen to right here.
