The horror of Glenn Quinn's last hours as he lay broken and dying in agony in his flat after a vicious attack by UDA thugs haunts his sister Lesley's every waking moment.

That he was frail due to a terminal illness meant that the 47-year-old - who should have celebrated his 48th birthday last Friday - had no chance to even attempt to defend himself.

Glenn died alone, suffering from horrific head and facial injuries as well as 14 broken ribs and a broken collar bone, after a ferocious attack with baseball bats and a metal bar.
