MORE than 50 people who were injured in an IRA bomb attack which killed two children are being asked to take part in a ceremony to mark its 20-year anniversary.

Three-year-old Johnathan Ball and 12-year-old Tim Parry were both killed by two bombs placed in litter bins on the street in Warrington, Cheshire, on 20 March 1993.

Now Warrington Borough Council and The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation are holding the event Saturday, 16 March, followed by a “community reflection event” at the foundation’s Peace Centre in the afternoon.

Council deputy leader Mike Hannon said: ““There were 56 people injured on the day of the bombing and many more people affected.

“We would like to hear from them, including those who may have moved out of the area.”
