Veterans gather in Manchester to protest Bloody Sunday prosecution

Veterans gathered in Manchester's Piccadilly Gardens today to protest the prosecution of a retired soldier for a killing in Ulster.

The unnamed soldier, known as Soldier F, is to be charged with murdering two people after troops opened fire on civil rights demonstrators in Londonderry in January 1972, on what became known as Bloody Sunday.

The protest was planned to coincide with a demonstration by veterans in London.
