Children of IRA bombing survivor 'respected and loved'


Flowers have been laid for Ben Pedersen, 7, and his sister Freya, 6, who were found stabbed to death in Newton Stacey, Hampshire, on Sunday.

Police believe Michael Pedersen, 51, stabbed his children before killing himself.

Mr Pedersen, a former member of the Household Cavalry, survived the IRA Hyde Park bombing in London in 1982.

Caroline Dyer, headteacher of his children's school, said they were "lovely children who were respected and loved".

BBC London's Nick Beake reports.
