THE families of four soldiers murdered by IRA terrorist John Downey today launch a bid for hundreds of thousands of pounds in damages.
The High Court ruled last year that Downey, 68, was involved in the 1982 Hyde Park car bombing.
Today, a judge will begin considering how much he must pay.
Downey’s Old Bailey criminal trial collapsed in 2014 thanks to a Good Friday agreement deal.
But families launched a civil action and Sun readers raised £85,000 to help.
