Windows shattered and shards of debris flew through the air as the blast tore through office buildings and shops within a half-mile radius in Manchester city centre on June 15, 1996 (left). Minutes earlier two police officers are seen directing people away from the vehicle (inset), which was packed with 1.5kg of explosives, and a bomb squad called in. A robot approaches the lorry but efforts to diffuse the bomb prove in vain as time runs out (middle). Nobody was killed but 212 people were injured and £700million in damage caused (right) after the explosive device was detonated close to Marks & Spencer and the Arndale shopping centre.
