Brother-in-law of MLA still critical after bike smash

By Allan Preston

A brother-in-law of independent MLA Claire Sugden, who was injured in a motorbike accident in Limavady on Saturday, is still in a critical condition.

Paul Butcher, who is being treated in the intensive care unit at Royal Victoria Hospital, was described by the PSNI as having sustained "serious and life-threatening" injuries.

It's understood Mr Butcher, who is in his early 40s, collided with a car driven by a woman in her 20s. It was reported that the injured man suffered a broken leg and was found to be unconscious when medics arrived.

Ms Sugden has been tipped to be the next Justice Minister on the Stormont Executive after the Alliance Party turned it down.
