    It seems cruel to single out individual moments from the Northern Troubles that provoked new levels of outrage, but the IRA's Warington Bomings did exactly that. Joining John from a studio in Manchester, are Colin & Wendy Parry, whose 12 year old son, Tim was killed in the bombings. Johnathan Ball who was 3 years old, was also killed.
