The murder of 21 people by Irish Republican turmoil in 1974 in the Birmingham pub bombing was a heinous crime perpetrated on innocent people. Comments made by Mick Hayes in relation to the bombings are a matter for the police. The investigation into the bombings is still open and as such it would be inappropriate to comment further.
