Three men were being questioned today about a loyalist paramilitary murder in Belfast.

They were arrested by detectives investigating the killing of Jameson Lockhart, 25, in the east of the city last July.

Mr Lockhart, from north Belfast, was gunned down at the wheel of a lorry on the lower Newtownards Road.

His killing was blamed on the Ulster Volunteer Force, which at the time was locked in a deadly feud with the rival Loyalist Volunteer Force.

Mr Lockhart had been clearing rubble from the demolished Avenue One Bar when the gunmen struck.

The arrests were made in the Belfast area, a Police Service of Northern Ireland spokesman confirmed.

He added: “Police are continuing to appeal for information that can assist their inquiries.”
