London terror attack hits home thumbnail

A COLERAINE primary school has called off their annual trip to London after the terrorist attack at Westminster last week which left five people dead.
And local MP Gregory Campbell has revealed to this newspaper that he was moments away from being caught up in carnage and had just gone inside Parliament when the radical Islamist terrorist struck at the heart of government.
The pupils of DH Christie Memorial PS were set to travel to the capital in the early hours of yesterday, Monday, March 27.
However, as the events of the terror attacks in London unfolded, Principal Peter Henry, was forced to postpone the trip because of fears of further trouble and panic situations.
Although a new date has not yet been confirmed, the Principal was able to confirm that he is working with the travel companies he had booked with, to try and arrange something for the children.
The single attacker struck on the afternoon of Wednesday, March 22, when he drove a car along Westminster Bridge and hit many pedestrians.
