UVF 'supergrass' case under way in Northern Ireland

The first 'supergrass' trial in Belfast for 25 years has begun amid high security inside and outside the court.

Fourteen defendants - aged between 32 and 46 - face a total of 97 charges.

Nine of them charged with murder are accused of being part of a UVF gang which killed leading UDA man Tommy English in October 2000.

Mark Simpson reports.
