Anger: Victims’ campaigner Kenny Donaldson

A victims' campaigner has branded secret legacy talks in London a "kick in the teeth" for all who lost loved ones during the Troubles.

Kenny Donaldson said it was shameful that victims were excluded from the discussions, which involved officials from the Northern Ireland Office (NIO) and Dublin's Department of Foreign Affairs, former IRA commander and Sinn Fein strategist Sean 'Spike' Murray and loyalist Winston Irvine.

The spokesman for Innocent Victims United blasted the talks as "having absolutely no legitimacy" and said those he represented were furious.
