A 49-year-old man has been arrested in east Belfast by police investigating the murder of Joseph Reynolds in Belfast 20 years ago.

Mr Reynolds, a 40-year-old from west Belfast, was travelling to work when his van was ambushed by UVF gunmen on Sydenham Road on 12 October 1993.

Last month, the police announced they were reopening the investigation into Mr Reynolds' murder.

A number of arrests have been made since, but no-one has been charged.

Mr Reynolds, who was a Catholic and a subcontractor painter, was on his way to Shorts aircraft factory with a number of workmates, when their vehicle was attacked.

Three others were injured in the attack.
