Letter: IRA bomb survivors

Click to follow
Sir: Many I know share the same sense of grief over the loss of St Ethelburga's church in the City of London.

A little good news in the midst of all the gloom is that, following the damage it sustained a year previously in the St Mary Axe bombing, I had the silver removed for safe keeping with the kind help of a City Livery company - and also Pieter Koeke van Aelst's painting, Christ Healing Blind Bartimaeus, removed for restoration and storage. Small comfort, I know, in the midst of so much devastation.

Yours sincerely,
