Lynne Lilburn at her home whose dad was severely injured on Bloody Friday

Castlereagh woman Lynne Lilburn firmly believes her father was the 10th victim of Bloody Friday — even though he didn’t die from his injuries until 25 years after the horrific IRA bomb blitz across Belfast half a century ago.

Lynne’s ‘miracle’ dad Jack Campbell had described himself as one of the luckiest men alive on the planet after a car bomb which he was leaning on at Oxford Street bus station exploded and hurled him onto an office roof.
