A man is due to appear in court today charged with the murder of UDA chief Colin 'Bap' Lindsay.

46-year-old Albert Armstrong has been charged with the murder of Colin Lindsay, 47, and the attempted murder of Stanley Wightman, 52.

Both men were found by police at an address in Kirkistown Walk in Belvoir Estate after the PSNI received a phone call just before 8pm on Wednesday.

Mr Wightman underwent surgery at the Royal Victoria Hospital after sustaining significant injuries to his arm and neck.

The police believe there was no paramilitary link to the killing, and that a sword was used in the attack.
