Loyalist charged over murder of UDA man


A top loyalist was tonight charged with the murder of another Protestant paramilitary in Northern Ireland.

Mark Haddock, 40, was charged with shooting dead Tommy English, a member of the Ulster Defence Association in October 2000.

English was gunned down in North Belfast in front of his wife and children during a bloody loyalist feud.

Haddock was charged by officers belonging to the police’s Historical Enquiries Team, a special unit set up to investigate unsolved murders during the Troubles.
