Smithwick report findings 'incredible and shocking' says son

William Buchanan, whose father Bob was shot dead, has said the findings of judge Peter Smithwick are "incredible and shocking".

He added that the report "confirmed the existence of a mole in Dundalk station - this led to my father's death".

The Smithwick inquiry found that Irish police officers colluded in the IRA murders of two senior Northern Ireland police officers.

Chief Supt Harry Breen and Supt Bob Buchanan were shot dead in an ambush in March 1989 in south Armagh.
