Just before 12:30 this lunchtime, the town of Warrington fell silent. People put their busy day on hold, to remember the victims of two IRA bombs, detonated within a minute of each other, 20 years ago today.
Three-year-old Johnathan Ball died at the scene. Tim Parry, who was 12, died of his injuries five days later. Another 56 people were hurt.
