In 1970, Robert Carr's home was damaged by an explosion. Responsibility for this was later claimed by a home-grown terrorist group calling itself "The Angry Brigade". As a result, the Metropolitan Police Bomb Squad was formed, which was later renamed the Metropolitan Police Anti-Terrorist Branch.[1]

Ricky Tomlinson and other surviving members of the Shrewsbury 24 claim that they were framed by UK Home Secretary Robert Carr, and are demanding government papers be released into the public domain to prove their case.[2]
