Birmingham bombing inquest: Just 15 people on duty on night of IRA pub bombing


Police numbers had been cut to just 15 officers across "busy" Birmingham city centre on the night of the 1974 IRA pub bombings, an inquest jury has heard. Inquests at Birmingham Civil Justice Centre into the 21 victims killed in the blasts got under way this week after a 44-year wait for the bereaved families.
