Police in Northern Ireland said they had arrested a 27-year-old man in the investigation into the murder of journalist Lyra McKee.
“No-one’s going to tell me what I can and can’t say at this point…I’ve literally just lost the love of my life.” In the midst of her grief at murdered journalist Lyra McKee's funeral, her partner accused Leo Varadkar, Theresa May and Karen Bradley of failing Northern Ireland.
Today, on behalf of the Labour Party, I attended Lyra McKee's deeply moving funeral. It was clear how loved and respected she was by all who knew her. Today was also a reminder of the vital importance of protecting the Good Friday Agreement and the Northern Ireland peace process.
Sara Canning, partner of murdered journalist Lyra McKee, tells @JackieLongc4 the Northern Ireland same-sex marriage amendment passing in Westminster today is "absolutely momentous" but she is "heartbroken because the person I wanted to marry isn't here to see it happen". #C4News
My thoughts are with the family and loved ones of Lyra McKee, senselessly killed while doing her job as a journalist. This shocking attack is a reminder of the vital importance of protecting the Good Friday Agreement and Northern Ireland peace process.
It’s Good Friday, 21 years after the peace deal was signed, and Northern Ireland is waking to dark news from the past. Rioting, petrol bombs, alleged bomb plots and, worst of all, a 29-year-old journalist, Lyra McKee, shot dead in the street.
