Scene of killing
Brian Stewart was shot dead as he arrived for work
The police have issued a fresh appeal for information about a fatal shooting in east Belfast.

Brian Stewart, 34, was shot dead in a gun attack in an industrial estate in the city shortly before 0800 BST on Tuesday.

He is understood to have been linked to another loyalist organisation - the Loyalist Volunteer Force.

Both loyalist groups have been involved in recent feuding in Belfast.

The incident took place at Alanbrooke Road off Montgomery Road in the Castlereagh area.

Detectives want to speak to people who were waiting at a bus stop on Montgomery Road at the time.

They also want to hear from the driver of a yellow and white delivery van seen in the area.

Mr Stewart was shot at close range in his car as he arrived for work at the industrial estate.

He was a driver for a plumbing firm.

The gunmen drove off in a silver Lexus car which was found on fire nearby, close to Lisnasharragh police station.
