Picture gallery: Warrington remembers
Hundreds of people gathered in Warrington town centre on Monday to mark the seventh anniversary of the IRA bomb blast which killed two young boys and left 56 others injured.

A young people's centre named after the child victims was to be officially opened in the afternoon.



A floral tribute from Johnathan Ball's mother. Part of the hand-written message reads: "You died in vain. Miss you always. Mum."



Three-year-old Johnathan died while out shopping with his teenage babysitter for a Mothering Sunday card and present.



Former Prime Minister John Major, acknowledged as an instigator of the Northern Ireland Peace Agreement, and current Fine Gael leader John Bruton at the ceremony.

Twelve-year-old Tim died while out shopping. His parents have campaigned tirelessly for a peace centre to be built in memory of the children who died.



Children, too young to even remember the bombing, lay floral tributes.
