'I want the truth to come out'

The families of David McIlwaine and Andrew Robb give their reaction as a man is convicted of double murder.

There was more than Steven Revels involved in my son's murder.

What we have been told by ex-UVF men is that Mark Burcombe was told to hand himself in but he was told just to implicate himself, Revels and Dillon.

He could say whatever he wanted about himself to keep himself right but he had to name those other two and nobody else.

I would love the truth to come out so that everyone would know what these people are like.

It could have been anyone's child that night.

He (Revels) is only one of a large group of people who were involved.

There's people within this crime who've been protected from the start.

I'm so satisfied with what I have done but I've a long way to go and I will never stop.

I don't have any qualms about how long it takes - I'll follow it up until I get the rest of them.
