A British soldier charged with the murder of two men and the attempted murders of five others during the Bloody Sunday massacre will not stand trial.
The man, known as Soldier F, was charged with the murder James Wray and William McKinney in Derry on January 30th, 1972.
He was the only person still facing charges in connection with the massacre at the civil rights march.
In all, fourteen people died after British soldiers opened fire on the crowds, with a further 15 people injured.
Northern Ireland’s Public prosecution service informed the victims families of the decision this morning.
It is now likely that nobody will ever face charges over the massacre.
Meanwhile, another soldier, known as Soldier B, will not face charges for the murder of 15-year-old Daniel Hegarty who was shot twice in the head near his home in the Creggan area of the city in the summer of 1972.
His family was informed this morning that t there is no longer a reasonable prospect of securing a conviction.
