Former loyalist terror chief Johnny Adair has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting his wife Gina.

Greater Manchester Police said the 41-year-old was arrested on Monday evening after officers were called to a park in Horwich, near Bolton.

Mr Adair was being questioned by officers on Tuesday.

He and his wife fled to Horwich after an internal feud within the Ulster Defence Association (UDA), of which he was once a senior member.
