ON THIS DAY IN 1991, CORBYN'S MATES... the Provisional IRA exploded multiple incendiary devices in shops along Tottenham Court Road in London.  The firebombs had been planted inside the Discount Furniture Store, the Reject Shop, Habitat and World of Leather.  The explosions and subsequent fires occurred in the early hours and no-one was hurt, although residents had to be evacuated from apartments above the shops.  No warnings were given.
