Bishopsgate Bombing: A truck bomb created by the Provisional Irish Republican Army is set off in in Bishopsgate, London's financial district. Only one person is killed and 44 injured, but the massive size of the bomb causes over £1 billion damage.

This bombing will lead to the creation of London's infamous "ring of steel," a cordon of security and surveillance that keeps everyone under constant observation. There will eventually be thousands of CCTV cameras throughout London.
