Concerns: Two people pass a loyalist mural on the Ravenhill Road in east Belfast yesterday

A Belfast man whose mother was killed in a UVF bomb has said loyalist paramilitaries' withdrawal of support for the Good Friday Agreement until the Irish Sea border is removed is "a veiled threat" which makes him worried for young loyalist people. 

Jude Whyte appealed to parents in the loyalist community to "keep their children close" to protect them from acting after the Loyalist Communities Council (LCC) and its chairman David Campbell sent a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

They claimed the basis on which loyalist paramilitaries committed to end violence in 1994 had been undermined by the Northern Ireland Protocol.
