LVF leader Billy Wright boasted of going to the home of IRA bomber Aidan Grew to warn of his intention to kill him.

The claim is contained on recordings the loyalist made before his 1997 murder in the Maze Prison by the INLA, sections of which are only now coming to light.

At the time of the intimidation in the 1990s, the Mid-Ulster UVF was at war with the East Tyrone IRA, with both gangs responsible for dozens of killings.
