Church chief's UVF sit-downs

The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church is understood to have held face-to-face talks with UVF leaders as pressure mounts on the loyalist terror group to disband.

Dr Norman Hamilton said yesterday he had been involved in recent and lengthy discussions — the latest believed to be a two-hour meeting last week at a location on Belfast’s Springfield Road.

But he refused to say if he had met face to face with UVF leaders, saying only: “I can confirm that meetings have taken place with various people over the last weeks and months."
