£50,000 Bloody Sunday offer

The families of 13 people killed by soldiers in Northern Ireland on Bloody Sunday have been offered £50,000 each in compensation.

Bloody Sunday compensation offer 'an insult'

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:

My brother cannot be replaced and all the money in the world won't bring him back.
