An ambulanceman hailed as a hero after the Baltic Exchange bombing in the City of London was sent to a secure psychiatric unit for killing his girlfriend.

The Old Bailey was told that Trevor Thomas, 50, of Barking, east London, suffered severe stress after attending the bombing in April 1992. One of the victims, a girl aged 15, died in his arms.

Five months afterwards, he shot Susan Oliver, 37, when she told him she was planning to end their 11-year relationship. His plea of guilty to manslaughter was accepted.
