Gary Fisher heads up the South East Antrim UDA, the prime target of the new initiative

Paramilitary loan-sharks have been warned to pack it in or face being targeted in a new PSNI crackdown.

Sunday Life can reveal the NIO (Northern Ireland Office) has set UDA factions a 15-month time limit to call a halt to lucrative money-lending rackets.

These involve handing out 20% interest loans to skint families with payments doubled each week if they are not paid on time, leading them into an endless spiral of debt.
