The sister of a Fermanagh teenager killed when the IRA murdered Lord Mountbatten has told of her pain after watching the dramatisation of the explosion on Netflix's The Crown.

Paul Maxwell (15) was killed along with Lord Mountbatten and his grandson Nicholas Knatchbull (14) and Lady Doreen Brabourne (83) in the 1979 IRA bombing of the royal's boat, Shadow V, at Mullaghmore, Co Sligo.

The Provo atrocity features in the first episode of series four of The Crown which premiered on Netflix last week.
