On 3 August 2001 the Real IRA detonated a car bomb containing 45kg of explosives in Ealingmarker Broadway, West London, England injuring seven people. Debris caused by the bomb spread more than 200m (218 yards). [356611]

Apart from the damage caused directly by the explosion, further extensive damage to property in the adjacent Ealing Broadway shopping centre was caused by flooding arising from the water main under the car bomb being ruptured.

In November 2001, three men, Noel Maguire, Robert Hulme and his brother Aiden Hulme, were arrested in connection with three bomb attacks in the UK. They were all later convicted at the Old Baileymarker on 8 April 2003. Robert and Aiden Hulme were each jailed for twenty years. Noel Maguire, who the judge said played "a major part in the bombing conspiracy", was sentenced to twenty two years.

Two other men, James McCormack, of County Louthmarker, and John Hannan, of Newtownbutlermarker, County Fermanagh, had already admitted the charge at an earlier hearing. James McCormack, who played the most serious part of the five, the judge said, was jailed for twenty two years. John Hannan, who was seventeen at the time of the incidents, was given sixteen years detention.
