A member of the Colombia Three is under investigation over an IRA landmine attack in which three RUC men died.

Martin McCauley, who is from Lurgan but lives in the south, is the focus of a new probe into the 1982 killings of sergeant Sean Quinn (37) and constables Paul Hamilton (26) and Allan McCloy (34), who died in an IRA explosion at Kinnego Embankment, near Craigavon, which blew their unmarked car 70ft into a field.

Ex-Bedfordshire Chief Constable Jon Boutcher announced the investigation on the 38th anniversary of the slaughter last Tuesday.
