    Default Republican Terrorist charged with Hyde Park bombing

    Good to see the arm of the law still on the look out for people who were probably thinking they got away with murder. Hopefully more arrests to other terrorist related attacks from that period will follow

    John Anthony Downey, 61, of County Donegal, Ireland has been charged with the murders of Roy John Bright, Dennis Richard Anthony Daly, Simon Andrew Tipper and Geoffrey Vernon Young.

    The four members of the Household Cavalry were travelling to Buckingham Palace when they were killed.

    Mr Downey was arrested at Gatwick Airport on Sunday.

    He has also been charged with intending to cause an explosion likely to endanger life.

    Mr Downey appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court where he spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and address.

    The case was sent to the Old Bailey for a bail hearing on Friday and a preliminary hearing on 5 June.
