Political leaders, bereaved families and the Prince of Wales joined together in Warrington this weekend to launch a 25-year programme aimed at ending terrorism in Britain and Northern Ireland, the Sunday Times reports (10 October p9).

Warrington was twice a target of IRA bombs this year. On the second occasion two young boy were killed.

Mary Robinson, the Irish president, spoke of her sorrow that the Warrington bombs had not marked an end to the violence. The paper notes that among those listening was Northern Ireland secretary Sir Patrick Mayhew.

The aim of the Warrington Project is to work with children in England and both sides of the Irish border to try and break down prejudices and foster a new understanding.
