The IRA yesterday admitted bomb attacks on the castle and shopping centre in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. As forensic experts continued to sift through the debris of Tuesday's blasts the terrorists issued a statement in Dublin saying that the bombing campaign would continue.

The devices caused damage, estimated at pounds 250,000, to many irreplaceable military exhibits at the Shropshire Regimental Museum in the castle. Two town-centre stores were also slightly damaged by firebombs.
