Police investigating the murder of a prominent loyalist in Northern Ireland have arrested a man.

The 23-year-old was detained on Sunday evening, while a 33-year-old woman who was arrested earlier in the day has been released, the PSNI said.

The man was arrested in relation to the murder of George Gilmore, 44, who died in hospital on March 14 after being shot in the neck while driving his car in Carrickfergus the previous afternoon.

Two men charged with the murder appeared at Belfast Magistrates' Court on Saturday.
