Dedicated blitz memorial for Belfast





The designer of the first national memorial to the hundreds killed in the Belfast blitz has recalled how her own family narrowly escaped injury in the bombing raids.

About 1,000 people perished in the city as a result of the attacks by German planes during April and May 1941.

On Thursday, a 5ft high bronze structure by Carolyn Mulholland symbolising the devastation will be officially dedicated at the Northern Ireland War Memorial Hall.
