One former British soldier will face charges over the Bloody Sunday shootings in Derry.

The paratrooper, Soldier F, will face prosecution for the murders of James Wray and William McKinney and the attempted murder of four others.

Members of the 1st Battalion of the Parachute Regiment opened fire at a civil rights march in the city in 1972 killing 13 people.

A 14th person died later.

The North’s Public Prosecution Service has been looking at the case of 18 soldiers – one of whom has since died.

It’s also been announced two former alleged members of the IRA will not face charges.

Families of the victims have been reacting to the decision:

Meanwhile Britain’s Defence Secretary says “full legal and pastoral support” will be offered to the soldier facing prosecution.

In a statement, Gavin Williamson says the UK government will fund all his legal costs and provide welfare support.

He also believes Britain is “indebted to these soldiers” who he says “served with courage and distinction”.
