A number of papers, including the Daily Mail, Telegraph and Express carry articles related to Bloody Sunday.

A Government spokesperson said:

It is only due to the courageous efforts of our security forces that we have the relative peace and stability that Northern Ireland enjoys today. We are now considering how best to improve the current system and ensure that there is no unfair and disproportionate focus on former members of the Armed Forces.
