UDA terror boss Johnny 'Mad Dog' Adair plotted to shoot PUP leader Billy Hutchinson while he was being interviewed on TV.

During the loyalist feud of 2000, which claimed seven lives, the ex-UVF prisoner was a prime target for UDA C Company based on Belfast's Lower Shankill.

According to Hutchinson a plan to kill him during a television interview was foiled as RUC Special Branch was bugging Adair's phone calls.
