Conservative peer Lord Tebbit, who was seriously injured along with his late wife in the 1984 IRA Brighton bombing, has said he reluctantly backs the Government’s legacy proposals.

Lord Tebbit said that while he sympathises with victims seeking justice, any prospect of IRA terrorists being brought to justice had been effectively dispensed with in the 1990s.
