Five members of a family were remanded in custody for a week charged in connection with IRA bombings on Tyneside.

Sean McNulty, 25, of no fixed address, was accused of conspiring to cause an explosion. His father and mother, Bernard and Dorothy McNulty, sister Annette Walker, and uncle Niall Cornelius McNulty faced a charge of failing to disclose information about an act of terrorism. North Shields magistrates were told that the charges stemmed from explosions at an oil terminal on 23 April and 9 June, and at a gas depot, also on 9 June.
