POLICE last night issued an artist's impression of a suspect in the IRA bombing of Bishopsgate in the City of London two months ago.

Video cameras filmed the man as, with an accomplice, he abandoned a lorry containing a one-ton bomb at 9am on 24 April. It killed one person and injured 36. The man in the drawing is 5ft 9in to 6ft tall and heavily-built with a moustache. He wore a slate grey three-quarter length anorak with a hood. The second man is described as white with a slim build, wearing light blue jeans and a blue and white mottled effect jacket also with hood.

The men were seen walking separately along Bishopsgate before turning left into Leadenhall. They were last seen near Cunard House. They are thought to be the same men who were seen shortly afterwards on platform one of Fenchurch Street station.
