The families of the Birmingham pub bombings’ victims yesterday made an impassioned plea to police to “go out and do the job” and prosecute IRA suspects at the conclusion of the inquest into the terrorist atrocity.

A jury yesterday returned verdicts of unlawful killings for the 21 people who died in the 1974 bombings, and ruled that a botched warning by the Provisional IRA had caused or contributed to their murders.

The jury’s verdict defied an attempt by the IRA to claim the victims had been killed by accident because of the failure of the terror cell to make coded warning calls in time.

Yesterday, relatives demanded West Midlands Police make arrests after a chief suspect, who is still alive, was named at the inquest by the IRA in a move sanctioned by its leadership. The same IRA witness was accused of protecting a second man, also still alive.

Julie Hambleton, whose sister Maxine was killed, said: “West Midlands Police have always told us when they get new evidence they will act on it, well here you go, you have the new evidence and I’m sure there is more to be had and more to be found.

“We now demand of Dave Thompson, the chief constable of West Midlands Police, to tie his shoe laces, black his shoes and go out and do the job because we’ve heard new evidence that two of the murderers are out there.”

The Police should act on the evidence and there should be justice for the victims families
