Father-of-four Sean McParland, 55, was gunned down in Skegoniel Avenue on 17 February, 1994 while babysitting his grandchildren. He died from his injuries a week later.

Gary Convie, 24, and Eamon Fox, 44, were sitting in their car at a building site in North Queen Street on 17 May, 1994 when a gunman opened fire with a sub-machine gun.

The suspect, 45, is currently being questioned at Newbury Police Station in Berkshire.

The arrest by detectives from the PSNI Serious Crime Branch is part of Operation Stafford, an investigation into a series of murders and other serious crimes by the UVF in north Belfast.
