  3. 3. Manchester Bomb Blast June 1996 a normal shopping day in Manchester City Centre was the target of an IRA bomb that sent shockwaves throughout the city. This is how it happened.
  4. 4. The Manchester ArndaleManchester Arndale Centre opened in 1976 and Centre before 1996it was the largest of all the Arndale shoppingcentres being built across the UK at the time.Manchester was a very popular place to shopnot just because of the variety of shopping inthe Arndale Centre but also with big namestores all within walking distance.Shoppers flocked to the centre every Saturdayand June 15th 1996 was no different. It wasestimated 75,000 to 80,000 shoppers andworkers were in the city centre that day.
  5. 5. In the 1970s the IRA had started a UK bombing Warrington Bomb Scenecampaign. th 20 March 1993It’s targets were mainly military but over the next20 years these changed and were aimed at non-military targets also.In the 1990s there were devastating bombings ofWarrington (killing two children) and Londoncausing millions of pounds worth of damage.The purpose was to attack the UK in the ongoing‘war’ for Irish independence in the north.
  6. 6. At 9.45 am message was The Van outside M&S TV received by Granadastation and it said that there was a bomb in thecentre.The van was parked on Corporation Streetbetween Marks & Spencer’s and the Arndale.Police recognised the IRA ‘codeword’ and afterspotting the van, began evacuating the area at10.00 am.One hour and twenty minutes later the whole ofManchester was shaken by the largest bomb everexploded on mainland Britain.
  7. 7. The good work of the police, Damage guards and M&S: The securityother emergency services made sure most peoplewere as far away from the blast as possible.Amazingly not one person was killed however 212people were injured.The main cause of the injuries was falling glass fromthe buildings surrounding the city. Those that neededhospital treatment were put on a tram to get toNorth Manchester General Hospital or even walkedto the Royal Infirmary near the University.One pregnant lady was blown 15ft in the air but wasfine!
  8. 8. 12 Buildings in the immediate area were severleydamaged including the Arndale Centre andTown Manchester M&S. CentreThe Arndale Centre and M&S were drastically rebuilthowever some businesses did not survive the effects.The Royal Exchange Theatre needed 2 ½ years ofrepairs.The Corn Exchange, famous for it’s second handmarket stalls and boutiques became The Triangle.It is estimated 40% of the businesses in the affectedarea stopped trading as a result of the bomb.
