Two men have been charged over the murder of Geordie Gilmore.

Former UDA 'commander' Gilmore died after being shot in broad daylight as part of a loyalist feud in Carrickfergus.

The 44-year-old who died in hospital on Tuesday, was in his car when he was hit in the neck, torso and leg after several shots were fired.

Police launched a murder investigation following the attack that happened around 2.15pm on Monday in Pinewood Avenue in the Co Antrim town's Woodburn estate.

The two men age 28 and 35 have been charged with murder, two counts of attempted murder and possession of a firearm or ammunition with intent to endanger life or property.

A PSNI spokesman said: "Both men are due to appear at Belfast MC on Saturday 18th March. As is normal procedure the charges are reviewed by the PPS."
