A publicity kit for the upcoming movie “A Belfast Story” was a improvised ‘nail bomb kit’ containing some horrific terrorist items including a balaclava, nails and a roll of duct tape.

Director Nathan Todd told BBC Good Morning Ulster they had not meant to frighten or offend people. The kit was sent out to many establishments including Chris Hewitt, who is from Banbridge in County Down, and runs Empire Magazine.

He tweeted on his twitter account “Just been sent the most distasteful freebie ever: a box containing a bag of nails (for a nail bomb) and a balaclava, for The Belfast Story.”
