Letter: Bomb disposal

Sir: Your cartoon of 26 April suggests that nitrate fertiliser was used in the Bishopsgate explosion. Surely it is not beyond the wit of the manufacturers' chemists to modify the product with an inhibitor that prevents its usefulness as an explosive agent.

Scientists created this natural bomb, then let science help to defuse it. The Government clearly cannot.

Yours faithfully,

R. P. WARNER
