Soldiers involved in Operation Motorman met for a 50th reunion party at the weekend while families of those killed held commemoration events in Derry.

The gathering has prompted a solicitor representing the family of 15-year-old victim Daniel Hegarty to write to the director of public prosecutions requesting that the organiser and guests of the event be contacted.
