A woman who lost her legs in an IRA bomb is to take legal action against the Stormont Executive over the delay in the delivery of a victims' pension scheme.

Jennifer McNern sustained horrific injuries when she was 21 in the 1972 Abercorn restaurant bomb in Belfast city centre. Her sister Rosaleen also lost her legs, and her right arm, in the explosion.

Ms McNern will seek leave to apply for a judicial review in Belfast High Court early next week.
