To mark 25 years since the detonation of a Provisional Irish Republican Army bomb in the heart of the Square Mile, the City of London Police are releasing never-before-seen crime scene photos of the devastation it caused.

A number of officers who were at the scene on 24 April 1993 and still work for the force today, have been recounting their experiences and memories of the huge explosion and the way policing in the City changed as a result.
