Luckily, Sean O’Callaghan, who was due to plant the explosives, was actually an inside informer.

Andy said: "When I first found out about it, it was absolutely bizarre.

"It was something we weren’t aware of at the time. I still can’t believe he could have put plastic explosives behind the royal box.

"We calculated the damage it would have caused and it would have killed us and half the people in the building.
