Wrong move: Lord Trimble said the loyalist paramilitaries’ stance was deplorable

A move to withdraw support for the Good Friday Agreement by a body that represents loyalist paramilitaries should be "deplored", Lord Trimble has said.

The former UUP leader, one of the architects of the peace deal, criticised the Loyalist Communities Council's (LCC) actions.

The LCC wrote to Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Taoiseach Micheal Martin this week stating that paramilitaries were temporarily withdrawing their backing over the protocol.
