Police are probing a jailed gangland killer's links to the attempted murder of a convicted drug dealer at the beginning of lockdown.

North Lucas was shot in the shoulder and the leg during an ambush in March near his home on the Ballycreely Road in Comber, Co Down.

The gun attack occurred just weeks after the 52-year-old was freed from prison, having been warned by a fellow inmate to pay a £400,000 debt following police raids on a cannabis farm.
