It would be a big mistake to bury murderer here

Published 19/01/2016

I have to protest against the idea that Robert Black will be buried in Northern Ireland.

I thought there might have been a sea change in the thinking on these matters since the revelations about the BBC's "much loved" children's presenter Jimmy Savile.

The people of Leeds wasted no time showing what they thought of having his grave in their area. They demolished it.

If Black ends up buried here, I certainly don't think he'll be left to "rest in peace".

Let's hope those in charge of this matter see sense.
