THE founder of the Loyalists Against Democracy (LAD) social media parody accounts has revealed comedian Paddy Raff had a central role in producing content for the group.

John-Paul Whearty, who says he left LAD four years ago, claims the popular Belfast comic - best known for his posh Malone Road character Nigel - was one of the central LADmins (administrators of the group) and was in charge of the social media sites at the time of Mr Whearty's departure.

LAD - which has come under increasing criticism - shut down suddenly last week following calls from Mr Whearty for it to close.
