A 28-year-old man has been arrested by police over the UVF shooting of Jemma McGrath in east Belfast last month.

He was held in connection with the shooting which took place in the Lord Street Mews area on September 25.

Police said a number of items were seized after a search of a house in the Ballymacarrett area.

24-year-old care worker Jemma McGrath is reported to have been left traumatised by the brutal attack.

At 10.40pm on September 25 she was confronted in Lord Street Mews, off the Beersbridge Road, and shot, before the gunmen fled down an alleyway to Trillick Street.

At the time, neighbours thought the shots were fireworks but then heard the young woman's screams of agony.
