A devastated mother has told how she can finally grieve properly for her son after two men were convicted of assaulting him months before he died in an unrelated tragedy.

Barbara Murray (53) pledged to her son Connor on his death bed in 2018 that she would get justice for the earlier attack.

Mr Murray, a former pupil of Larne Grammar, died six days after being pulled from the town's Inver River in May 2018. He had accidentally fallen into the fast-flowing water.
