THE COP leading the Glenn Quinn murder investigation has branded the killers of the popular Co Antrim man "UDA drug dealers".

Detective Chief Inspector Darren McCartney confirmed for the first time that members of the terror gang were involved.

He stressed they had "attacked other people before" and were lying in wait for terminally-ill Glenn, who was set upon as he opened the front door of his flat on the Woodburn estate in Carrickfergus.
