Blast son's peace call

A man who lost his father after the IRA killed Remembrance Sunday worshippers marked the 25th anniversary of the attack by appealing for no return to violence.

Days after the killing of a prison officer, Stephen Gault laid a floral tribute to father, Sammy Gault, a retired Royal Ulster Constabulary officer, at a service remembering the Enniskillen Poppy Day bomb attack.

Eleven people died in the blast. A twelfth death was recorded later.

Mr Gault turned 18 a few days before the bombing. He said yesterday: "It was one of the darkest days of the Troubles. I want people to remember the agony and torment the families have been through."
