manchester bomb 1996

Where were you on the 15th JUNE 1996 around lunch time,can you remember? I can, I was sat in our kitchen,when the news came on and said manchester had been bombed by the IRA.It was the day before fathers day!

Forty minutes before the blast,the police started to evacuate everyone,some where even told to go where the bomb was going to go off,but where moved again,to victoria station,once the police relised.

The IRA set off a 3,000lb bomb on that day,200 people where injured,luckly no one was killed!

But look at us now  in 2011
