Play based on Paddy Hill & Birmingham Six gets first reading ahead of Pub Bombings 42nd anniversary
It’s widely thought the bombs were planted by the IRA but at the time no one admitted responsibility for the atrocity.
Nor has anyone been brought to justice, and to this day the attack remains the largest unsolved mass murder on the British mainland.
Six men were wrongly convicted for the bombings but had their convictions quashed by the Court of Appeal in 1991.
The men became known as the Birmingham 6, and their wrongful conviction became one of the most well known miscarriages of justice in the 20th century.
Paddy Hill was one of those Birmingham 6 and has now attended a play about his life.
Paddy has now formed an at once unthinkable alliance with campaign group Justice for the 21, who are fighting to find out who did murder their loved ones.Last night he said he would stick by the group in their fight for justice.
