A former nightclub owner is the latest high-profile individual to face major criminal charges connected to the cracking of the EncroChat phone network.

Gerard Robert McCann (50), who is originally from west Belfast but is now based in Holywood, Co Down, will appear in court next month accused of nine counts of cocaine and cannabis importation, drug dealing and money laundering.

He was arrested on July 9 when officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA) and PSNI raided his plush home on Seapark Lane, where houses reach the £400,000 mark.
