Paramedic remembers Brighton Bomb aftermath

A paramedic who helped rescue casualties in the aftermath of the Brighton bombing has spoken ahead of the 30th anniversary of the attack.

Five people died and 31 were injured when an IRA bomb exploded at the Grand Hotel, during the Conservative Party conference in 1984.

The IRA's target was Margaret Thatcher, who was staying at the hotel.

Paramedic Chris Williams was in the second ambulance to arrive after the explosion.

The footage also features Harvey Thomas, who was rescued by the emergency services.
