IRA supergrass 'abandoned' claim rejected

An IRA supergrass who said he had been abandoned by MI5 after "saving countless lives" has his claim rejected.

Raymond Gilmour has lived under a false identity for 30 years.

He claimed his MI5 handlers had promised him £500,000, a new home, psychiatric support and a pension, but a tribunal rejected his claim for compensation.
