Audio slideshow: Remembering Lockerbie

The quiet Scottish town of Lockerbie was brought suddenly and shockingly to the world's attention on a wintry evening 20 years ago.

The bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 - more than 30,000 ft above the town - caused the deaths of 259 passengers and crew. Eleven people on the ground were also killed, as sections of the airliner crashed down.

Here - with the help of archive material - four people who were in Lockerbie on 21 December 1988 recall what happened.

Testimonies from Marjory McQueen, Maxwell Kerr, Father Pat Keegans and George Stobbs.

Slideshow production by Paul Kerley. Publication date 19 December 2008.
