(The UK Mirror) -- A blundering bomber was being hunted last night after a powerful device he attached to a car exploded in his face.
The injured criminal fled the scene in Dublin “dripping in blood” on Sunday night after the device went off early.
It had been attached to a Volvo SUV belonging to a local businessman.
One of the theories is the suspect forgot about the clocks changing.
A source said: “It would appear that the bomber got his timings wrong. It could be a case where he didn’t put his watch forward on Sunday [at 1am] and the timer went off too soon.”
Irish police are investigating if he got his timings wrong after planting the high-grade explosives under an SUV on Long Lane in Dublin’s South Inner City.
Neighbours reported hearing a huge blast at around 11pm on Sunday near the old Meath Hospital.
The man was then seen stumbling from the scene and getting into a taxi on the junction of New Street and Clanbrassil Street.
