The only man convicted in connection with the Northern Bank robbery is now suing the bank for taking possession of millions of pounds found by gardai at his home.

Retired businessman Ted Cunningham (72) has issued High Court proceedings in Dublin seeking damages for "conversion" of the cash, which he says was seized by gardai under legislation found to have been unconstitutional.

Conversion is the wrongful assertion of control over someone else's goods.
