Arrest in loyalist death inquiry


Lindsay Robb was murdered on Hogmanay

Police have arrested a man in connection with the death of a former loyalist gun-runner in Glasgow.

Lindsay Robb, 38, was assaulted on 31 December last year outside shops in Gartloch Road, in the Ruchazie area.

Strathclyde Police said a 29-year-old man was in custody and a report would be submitted to the procurator fiscal.

Mr Robb was jailed for 10 years in 1995 for involvement in a UVF gun-smuggling plot and released four years later under the Good Friday Agreement.

He was a prominent member of the Progressive Unionist Party and was convicted along with four other men following an extensive undercover operation.
