Robber free to wed

A violent armed robber was freed from jail yesterday to get married in a ceremony attended by his sex killer best friend.

But the wedding was almost cancelled after the Co Antrim hotel where it was being held was targeted in a hoax bomb alert.

Life sentence prisoner Joe Lockhart, 36, tied the knot with bride Natasha at the Clarion Hotel in Carrickfergus.

Among the guests was his warped pal Ken Callaghan – a notorious murderer who strangled and then raped his dead or dying victim in east Belfast in 1987.
