Birmingham pub bombs inquiry backed


A bereaved sister's campaign to get the Birmingham pub bombings re-investigated has been backed by Northern Ireland's First Minister, Peter Robinson.

Two bombs exploded in the Tavern in the Town and The Mulberry Bush pubs in November 1974, killing 21 people.

Julie Hambleton wants a public inquiry to find out who caused the blasts that killed her 18-year-old sister Maxine.

After meeting Ms Hambleton at Stormont on Friday, Mr Robinson said a new investigation was "necessary".
