A solicitor for one of the families said the offer of £50,000 compensation to the families of those killed by British paratroopers during a civil rights march in Derry, in 1972, said the offer was derisory and an insult to those killed.
Kate Nash, whose brother William was killed and father Alex injured, said:
The families of 13 people killed by soldiers in Northern Ireland on Bloody Sunday have been offered £50,000 each in compensation.
Paratroopers opened fire on unarmed civil rights marchers in Derry in 1972.
Thirteen others seriously injured have also been offered £50,000 each as part of a total compensation package from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) worth around £1.3 million.
