John Kyle set to remain as PUP leader

Dr John Kyle will remain as stand-in leader of the Progressive Unionists, a spokesman for the party has said.

The Belfast GP took over as head of the UVF-linked group following the resignation of its only Assembly member Dawn Purvis.

Ms Purvis stood down after the UVF was blamed for murdering Bobby Moffett, 43, on the Shankill Road.

A special meeting of the party leadership decided to continue with Dr Kyle.
