TURNCOAT: Dennis McFadden set his old pals up for MI5

NEW IRA chiefs are bracing themselves for a string of arrests as detectives work their way through secret recordings of two meetings of the gang's 'Army Council'.

The summits, which were bugged by MI5 double agent Dennis McFadden, have led to nine dissidents being charged with directing terrorism, including prominent republicans Davy Jordan and Kevin Barry Murphy.

Others who were not present at the meetings but were named on the tapes are being targeted for arrest. Among these are the New IRA's Belfast boss Gary McNally, who was arrested by police last Monday before being freed without charge later that day.
