IRA connections to the Isle of Wight

Two home made bombs thought to be connected to the IRA have been found alongside guns and ammunition at woodland on the Isle of Wight.

The South East Counter Terrorism Unit is investigating after the explosives were found by a dog walker close to Parkhurst Prison last month.

Officers think they could be related to IRA prisoners who were being held on the island in the 1970s and 80s. Martin Dowse explains.
