Birmingham Pub Bombings: Coroner orders fresh inquests

A coroner has ordered fresh inquests into the deaths of 21 people in the 1974 Birmingham pub bombings.

The atrocities are widely acknowledged to have been the work of the IRA but those responsible have now evaded justice for over four decades. Six men - known as the Birmingham Six - were wrongfully convicted and spent up to 17 years in prison before they were released in 1991.

Julie Hambleton, whose sister Maxine was killed in the bombings, joined us ahead of this result alongside one of the Birmingham Six, Paddy Hill. Paddy spent 16 years in prison before his conviction was quashed and is now determined for a "proper inquest" to take place.
