Calls on Church for cash

Relatives of the Claudy bomb victims could sue the Catholic Church over Provo priest Fr James Chesney's role in the massacre.

Mary Hamilton, who was seriously injured in the 1972 no-warning blast that killed nine, last night said she expects the church to compensate the victims.

If not, the families of those murdered could pursue a huge civil action that could cost the church up to £20m.
