The 1996 Canary Wharf bombing, (also known as the Docklands bombing) by the Provisional I.R.A, brought an end 17 months of ceasefire. During this time Irish, British and American leaders were working toward a solution to The Troubles. They had used a small lorry containing half a tonne of ammonium nitrate fertiliser, semtex and other high-explosives and sugar for the bomb. Although a coded warning was telephoned in, and the area evacuated, two men died and a further 39 were severely injured.
