BBC News - IRA St Albans bomb memorial 'grotesque' - Peter Lilley I mean seriously WTF? added annoyance the two are described as volunteers by the PC it hurts bbc rather than incompetant. didn't remember this bomb but hahaahahahhaahaahhahaahhahahaahhaahhaha An MP has condemned plans to lay flowers in memory of an IRA bomber blown up in St Albans 20 years ago. Patricia Black and Frankie Ryan were killed on 15 November 1991, when a bomb they were carrying detonated early. Police have confirmed the family of one of two IRA members plans to mark the anniversary by laying a wreath. Peter Lilley, who was the city's MP at the time, said: "I think it's grotesque to commemorate an evil act which was attempting to kill indiscriminately." He said the bomb had targeted "innocent citizens of St Albans and bandsmen". The bomb exploded in the doorway of the old Barclays Bank next to the Alban Arena. The Blues and Royals military band were playing in the venue at the time.
