It has emerged that the 49-year-old man who died following a serious assault in County Antrim last night may have defied orders from loyalist paramilitaries to leave town.

Detectives launched a murder inquiry after Tommy Hollran died in hospital from serious head injuries, after being found lying in an alleyway in Carrickfergus.

It is claimed he had been told to quit the town late last year after a dispute with loyalist paramilitaries.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
