The devastated family of UVF murder victim Bobby Moffett say they know who ordered his brutal killing.

The dad-of-six's heartbroken sister Lily Kelly told Sunday Life that a senior Shankill Road loyalist gave the green light for her brother to be cut down in cold blood.

Brave Lily now plans to name the UVF boss to police.

She said: “The UVF are a pack of cowardly murdering b*****ds.

“I know who ordered the shooting and I will gladly give their names to the police.

“They couldn't take Bobby on man to man, they don't have the balls for that, so they sneaked up on him and shot him on the street.”

Bobby, a former Red Hand Commando prisoner, was gunned down on the Shankill Road in Belfast in front of horrified shoppers on Friday afternoon.

The 43-year-old was shot in the head and face. Ignoring pleas of mercy from shocked onlookers, the gunmen pumped more bullets into him as he lay on the ground.

A 40-year-old man was arrested yesterday in connection with the killing.
