A man who was arrested by detectives investigating the murder of Simon Tang in County Antrim 16 years ago has been released unconditionally.

The 45-year-old man was arrested in north Belfast on Tuesday morning.

Mr Tang, who was 28, died in June 1996 after he was attacked and robbed outside his takeaway business in Carrickfergus.

Five people - three men and two women - have been charged with offences linked to the murder in recent months.

Mr Tang was an Oxford University graduate, but instead of pursuing a career in architecture he took over the family business.
