THERE is a heavy police presence in Enniskillen this morning as the town prepares to remember the 1987 bombing, one of the darkest days of the Troubles.

11 people were killed and 63 were injured. A 12th victim died in December 2000 after spending 13 years in a coma after sustaining serious injuries in the bombing.
